In April, Town Meeting will be asked to approve the purchase of rubbish and recycling carts for every Reading household. This will better prepare the Town financially for when the current rubbish/recycling collection contract expires in 2026 and the town considers moving to automated collections.
The Town’s brief, 10 question survey, is available here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RubbishCarts
Below are two videos that correspond to the survey if you need more information on what is being discussed. The Town of Reading has prepared a YouTube video that goes over what is proposed as well as the the RCTV recording of the 3/27/23 public meeting with questions and answers at the end.
