Mandatory Outdoor Water Use Ban In Effect

Public Works Director Aaron Miklosko announces that the Town of Maynard will have a mandatory outdoor water use restriction beginning Monday June 11th, 2018, and will remain in effect until further notice.

The water restriction is the result of an effort to preserve the town’s water supply following a recent mechanical failure in one of its water production wells.

Under this Water Conservation Restriction, all nonessential outdoor use of water is prohibited at all times. The conservation order will be strictly enforced by local officials.

The elevated conservation restriction will help ensure the town can provide an adequate supply of water for drinking and fire protection.

DPW: Recycling Announcement

The Town of Maynard is announcing automated curbside collection of single stream recycling. Every residence will receive a 95-gallon cart the week of July 31st through August 5th. The entire Town’s recycling will be picked up the week of August 7th and every other week thereafter. Additional carts may be purchased by calling E.L. Harvey. 38-gallon carts are also available for those that need a smaller cart.

With “single stream” recycling no separation of material is needed, i.e. glass, paper and plastic. All material must be in the cart to be collected and the cart must be curbside away from trash, mailboxes, etc. Set bins out by 7am clearly separated from trash. Bins containing improper materials will be left behind.

Here is the calendar showing the transition between the current blue/gray bins and the newer single-stream schedule:
