Not only does recycling make financial sense (you will save money on trash fees), it is required by state and local law. Residents are expected to keep recyclables separate from trash. The town enforces its recycling law; households with poor or no recycling are subject to fines. For collection service, the cost of recycling is included in the trash service fee. For more information about trash service fees, go to http://www.mansfieldct.gov/content/1914/3973/40158/40162/40170/default.aspx. At the transfer station, there is no charge for most recyclables.
