Disposal of Garbage, Recyclables & Green Bags

The Town of Southampton utilizes a pay-per-bag program for resident self-haulers only. The town provides no garbage pickup services. Residents bring their household garbage and recyclables to any one of the four town-operated recycling centers.


All recyclables should be transported separately and placed in the appropriate trailer / location at the recycling center. Recyclables such as corrugated cardboard, mixed paper, cans, glass bottles, and plastics #1 and #2 only are accepted at no cost to residents.
