Some of my trash was not picked up. What happened?

Recycling is mandatory for trash pickup, so both need to be at the curb by 6 AM. Also, check to make sure your trash is bagged and/or you haven't exceeded the one-barrel limit. 

If it's your usual trash day (and not a holiday), call the DPW at 978-356-6612. If it's a holiday week, make sure your trash and recycling are out for pickup the following day by 6 AM.   

If you exceeded the one-barrel limit and did not put your extra trash in an official overthrow bag, you can purchase overthrow bags at the following stores in Ipswich: Aubuchon, Conley's Drug, Cumberland Farms, DJ's Variety, Richdale, Shaw's and Tedford's. Please remember that trash bags cannot weigh more than 50 pounds each.
