Cleanup day to beautify Easton

The Town of Easton will hold a cleanup day on Saturday, Oct. 26.

The town garage on the Fry Pan Road will be the collection point for household junk, such as appliances, tires, furniture, wood, etc. Wood products must be separated. No household garbage or used oil will be accepted, and no commercial loads are allowed.

There will also be a collection point next to the recycling igloos behind the town office to dispose of electronics such as televisions, computers, monitors, printers, fluorescent bulbs, circuit boards, cell phones, fax machines, scanners, laptops, DVD/VCR players, batteries and copiers. 

All recyclables must be deposited in the igloos behind the town office. Collection is for Easton residents only. Coordinate your fall cleaning with the Town Clean Up Day and make use of our efforts to make Easton a more beautiful place to live.
