The Berlin Bulletin
Hello everyone,

Election Day is November 6, 2018. Be sure to take the time to vote that day if you didn't take advantage of early voting, which ends today, November 1st. Information about the election and polling places can be found at the bottom of this email. 

Effective November 5th, the Town will be moving the recycling drop-off location from 309 William Street to Town property adjacent to Berlin Falls Park on Old Ocean City Boulevard. We'll have plenty of signs at the new location so it will be hard to miss. The new collection site will no longer require residents to separate their recycling by material, it will be separated at an off-site facility. This service is available to all Town residents and businesses. Residential curbside recycling will continue as usual.

Our fall bulk collections are scheduled for November, 7th and 14th. If your regular trash collection day is Tuesday or Wednesday, your bulk pick up will be on Wednesday, November 7th. If your regular trash collection day is Thursday, your bulk pick up will be on Wednesday, November 14th.
Thank you for your interest in the Berlin Bulletin,
Laura Allen
Town Administrator
