East Longmeadow overflow trash bags ("Green Bags"), will temporarily be blue in color instead of the traditional green bags. The blue bags will include stickers that say "Town of East Longmeadow" for each blue bag in the roll. Stickers will be required on each bag when it is out on the curb to be picked up. Both green and blue bags will be picked up by Casella during this time until we receive our green bags again. If you have any questions, call the Health Dept. at 413-525-5400 x 1106. (Pictures below)
