Garbage and Recycling

Montague runs a curbside collection program through Glenview Iron and Metal (GIM) for garbage pickup and GFL Environmental (GFL) for recycling pickup. Recycle pickup dates are on the same day as regular garbage pickup, and there are no interruptions during the year except when Christmas and New Year's days falls on your regular pickup day. Make sure you put your garbage and recycling at the curbside by 7:00 am on the scheduled day of collection. Only household garbage will be collected on pickup days.
