                       SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING

Starting in July the Town will switch to single-stream recycling collection. With Single-
Stream Recycling you will put all recyclable materials into the blue recycling cart
the Town will provide at no charge to you. It’s that easy. No more bagging, tying or
bundling, and no need to separate different types of metal, glass and plastic containers
from paper and cardboard - simply mix all recyclable materials together in the cart, close
the lid and wheel it to the curb for collection!
Important information about Single-Stream Recycling:

 Recycling carts will be provided at no charge to residences who receive the
   Town’s collection services. The containers are on display at the following locations
   for residents who want to see the new recycling cart sizes: Town Hall, Senior Center,
   Mary Cheney and Whiton Libraries, and Community Y. Recycling carts will be
   delivered in June. Residences with a large green garbage cart will automatically
   receive a large blue recycling cart. This size stores about four standard bins worth of
   recycling. Residences with a small or medium green garbage cart will automatically
   receive a medium blue recycling cart which stores about three standard bins worth of
   recycling.

 Garbage should be placed in the green cart and will be collected each week on
   your normal collection day.

 Recycling should be placed in the blue cart and will be collected every other
   week on your normal collection day.
Brooks Parker, Director of Public Works Environmental Services Manager will be
coming to the Senior Center on Thursday, June 11 th at 12:30 to talk about this new
program and to answer any questions.
