What is the program?

The City of Biddeford implemented a new curbside recycling and trash collection program on July 1, 2013. Properties that are in the program receive a blue Zero-Sort recycling bin and a smaller green trash container to limit "free" trash collection. Collection is curbside so residents living in properties that are in the program no longer have to bring their recyclables to the Recycling Center, they get picked-up at curbside or roadside. Trash and recycling get picked up on the same day every week. Check out what day is your collection day (PDF).
