The Town of Northfield provides its residents with weekly curbside collection of household trash through a contract with Casella Resource Solutions. Curbside collection is provided only for residential taxpayers. Commercial and industrial units must contract with a private provider for trash removal. Apartments and other properties containing more than two residential units or sturctures on a parcel are considered commercial for the purposes of trash collection.
Effective June 1, 2021 all residential curbside collection will require up to 2 - 45 gallon barrels for each residence. If you are a two family home which is registered as a two family with the Town you are alloted up to 4 - 45 gallon barrels. Each barrel must be marked with your 911 address(es), and must accompany a lid at the curbside which must close all the way. No overage of trash or bags, boxes, etc. on the side will be collected. If you have trash which is over the required limit, you must seek alternate options to dispose of said trash, one option could incude bringing it to Casella on Rt. 140 at cost, or seeking other disposal sites in NH.
