Who is covered by the Amesbury Municipal Solid Waste Contract?
The contract covers residential units up to 6 per building and businesses in the Central Business District (CBD). We cover the businesses in the downtown due to the limited space available for individual secured dumpsters as required by regulation. The downtown, our CBD, is still limited to 3 barrels or 5 bags per pick-up and must be put out by 6:30a.m. If you are not covered by the Municipal contract you may contract with Mello or Waste Management or other contractor you choose, for pickups to cover your needs.
