New waste hauler

The town’s new curbside contractor, Casella Waste Inc., began work in town Wednesday.

There will be no changes to residential curbside collection, the Pay As You Throw Program, pickup schedule or holiday schedule. Town trash bags or tags are still required.

Casella replaces R.W. Herrick, which will continue to serve municipal departments but did not wish to continue residential, curbside service when that contract expired June 30.

For questions or more information, call Gorham Public Works Department at 892-3649, or Casella Waste at 464-0049.
