How much do the Ipswich Overthrow Bags cost?

Ipswich’s official Overthrow Bags cost $2 per bag and are sold in a 5-bag pack for $10. These bags are necessary only when you dispose of trash in excess of one 35-gallon bag or barrel per week.

Please remember that all trash needs to be in a bag. Overthrow bags should be placed on top of or next to the first free bag/barrel.

Overthrow bags can be purchased at Aubuchon, Conley's Drug, Cumberland Farms, DJ's Variety, Richdale, Shaw's and Tedford's.
