As of Sept. 1, 2011 Northampton's Locust Street Transfer Center will only accept trash that has been placed in the city's blue bags. Pedal People brings trash and recycling to two different transfer centers, the Locust St. Transfer Center and Valley Recycling.
Customers whose trash is brought to the Locust Street Transfer Center have the option of buying their own bags and getting a 22% discount on their monthly costs.
The bag system is designed to reduce trash and increase recycling, and customers may find that buying bags makes them more aware of the volume of trash they produce. Blue bags are available at the DPW and at many stores around town, and come in three sizes. For more information on the bag program, see the DPW website.
