  • Single family residential home                                                          2 barrels or 4 bags
  • Single-familyresidential home with approved apartment                  3 barrels or 6 bags (total)
  • Duplex homes                                                                                    4 barrels or 8 bags (total)
  • Condominium homes                                                                        2 barrels or 4 bags (each)
  • Apartments of two units                                                                     3 barrels or  6 bags (total)
  • Mobile or manufactured homes on common property                       2 barrelsor 4 bags (each)

  • If you have more trash than these guidelines allow in each week, you can purchase a sticker for each additional trash bag for $2/bag. The sticker must be placed visibly on each additional bag and not on the trash barrel. Any additional trash bags outside of set limits without a sticker will not be picked up. Stickers are sold at Town Hall.
  • There are no limits on recycling put out each week.
  • Recycling Container Guidelines: You can use a Hampstead recycling bin (available at Town Hall), or you can use any other barrel, bin, container as long as it’s clearly marked as “RECYCLING.”
