Why can’t I get a free toter?

Several years ago, the recycling vendor initially provided free toters to Westford residents until they realized that the cost of providing toters to everyone in town would be prohibitive. These 64 gallon toters with yellow lids belong to the Town of Westford, not the homeowner, and are linked to the address they were delivered to. The Town of Westford did not pay for the toters.
