MANCHESTER RECYCLES! 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.
