Automated Weekly Curbside Pickup

Paine’s offers convenient and affordable weekly curbside trash and recycling collection. Automated pickup is the most advanced collection system available. In fact Paine’s was the first in Connecticut to implement this system. Our trucks are equipped with a hydraulic arm that pick up the automated barrel and empty it into the top of the truck. The automated arm then places the barrel right back where it was. Watching our trucks maneuver out on their routes has been a huge hit with kids of all ages.

At Paine’s we provide both a trash and recycling barrel. Both carts are easy to roll with a flip top lid, handle and wheels. Once tipped & properly balanced on the wheels, the barrels can be rolled easily, even with a good deal of weight in them.


The health and safety of our employees and their families is of utmost importance to our company.  As the impact of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak continues to evolve, our company’s attention falls directly on the safety and wellbeing of our employees, families, and the communities we live and work in. 


Based on Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) recommendations & an abundance of caution, employee safety, and heightened concern surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus, the following Paine’s services will have minor impacts until further notice.


  • Residential trash WILL be collected weekly (Be sure it is bagged within the cart) and recycling WILL be collected bi-weekly at the curb. No additional bags of trash or recycling will be collected outside of the cart. Additional trash carts are available for a fee.
  • Commercial trash and recycling WILL be collected. No additional bags of trash or recycling will be collected outside of the dumpster.
  • Bulk waste pick-up and dumpster deliveries & collections WILL continue. 


A special thank you to all our staff for their hard work during this confusing time. We appreciate every one of you! Thank you to all our customers for your patience as we navigate our way through this unprecedented health emergency. Paine’s will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary.
