Trash & Recycling Collection

In 2020, Bristol’s Department of Public Works moved to automated trash & recycling collection. Every Bristol residence received two 65-gallon containers – one (1) blue container for recycling and one (1) green container for trash.

To learn more about Bristol’s collection schedule, policies, and instructions, please see below.

Thank you, and we look forward to better servicing you!
