ATTENTION:  There will be no recycling collection on Thursday, July 4, 2019.  We ask that you hold all recyclables until the next regular collection on Thursday, July 11, 2019. 

The Town of Bridgewater will no longer be accepting glass during weekly recycling collection. Unfortunately, the facility that receives our recycling cannot accept glass, and we have no other recycling outlet. We will continue to look for an appropriate outlet with the hope that we may be able to resume collection of glass with our recycling in the future, but for the time being, glass should be included with normal household trash.
