GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING RECYCLING COLLECTION:

 

Starting on March 31, 2014 the utility’s hauler will begin collecting “single stream” recycling. Your collection day will remain the same, however you will now be able to place ALL RECYCLING MATERIALS in a single container and place them at the curb for collection.  Your current recycling day WILL NOT CHANGE.

IMPORTANT:

• Recycling containers must not exceed 50 pounds, 32 gallon containers are recommended.

• Use plastic bags for shredded paper only. All other material must be in a container loose, not in a plastic bag.

• Do not tie cardboard or newspapers. Put in reusable containers loose, or stack folded boxes into a cardboard box.

• Label your recycling containers with free decals available at Town Hall.

• Put all Styrofoam into the regular solid waste, it is coded #6 and is not acceptable for recycling.
