Due to changes in the recycling requirements, the receiving facility that takes our recycled material is rejecting loads that contain trash or other non-recyclable materials. No trash, trash bags, plastic bags (i.e. Stop & Shop, Home Depot, etc.), or other non-recyclable materials may be disposed of in your blue recycle container.
The City will be subject to fines and additional disposal costs if the violations continue. Notices have been mailed to property owners where violations have been observed. To protect the taxpayers from incurring these costs, repeat violations will be subject to fines.
Copies of the recycling guide are available in the Engineering Division office in City Hall, and the City website.
