Collection Service Recycling

How to prepare:

All of the items below can be placed together in the recycling cart. You may put out extra recyclables in a cardboard box or bin next to your cart on occasion. For large cardboard, cut it down to a size that will fit in the cart. If the cart is full, place it next to the cart. If you routinely have an overflowing recycle cart, you may get a second cart by contacting the Town at 860-429-3333. The charge is an additional $5 per month.
