Does this program cost me more money?

With this Waste Reduction Program, residents only pay for the excess amount of trash they generate after the first bag or barrel. Ipswich’s Waste Reduction Program provides hauling service to all households and allows the first bag or barrel to be collected at no charge. 

By recycling items at the curb, most residents are able to fit all of their trash into the one free container each week and experience little or no additional cost.
