As an alternative to the totes, City residents may purchase and use the blue City of Watertown stickers, which may be purchased at City Hall as well as a variety of other locations.

Biweekly recyclable collection is included with the use of the city refuse program

No recycling services will be provided to any city resident who does not participate in the municipal refuse collection service
