NORTHBOROUGH – Northborough will be starting with a new provider for its trash and recycling collection services this summer.

According to a press release from Town Administrator Tim McInerney, Northborough has had a solid waste contract with Republic Services for years, and Republic told town leaders that their service model would soon end manual collection.

The town solicited bids, and the town ultimately decided to choose E.L. Harvey as its new provider. Northborough has entered into multi-year contracts with E.L. Harvey for the town’s collection and recyclable material management.

E.L. Harvey will begin to provide services on July 1.

“Choosing E.L. Harvey & Sons allows Northborough to consolidate services under one provider, which simplifies responsibility for any recycling contamination – reducing costs associated with such contamination,” McInerney wrote.

According to the town, there will not be any changes to the curbside service and schedule for residents.

More information, updates and a solid waste calendar will be mailed to residents before the July 1 transition date.
