The more clean paper (anything that tears) and containers (plastic, metal and glass) you divert from your trash, the less cost to the town and you. This is because there is a charge to dispose of trash, but there is a manufacturing demand for recyclables, so your recycling earns income that helps defray pickup costs. You can place your recycling in any container that you mark “recycling.” Stickers are also available at the Board of Health at Town Hall. There is no limit to the number of recycling containers put at your curb. Up to five 33-gallon waste containers can be placed at the curb each week. With all the items that can be recycled, most households will have much less trash and more recycling. If you find that you have an extenuating circumstance, call the Board of Health.
