      What is Single Stream

    “Single Stream Recycling is a system that
    takes two recycling “streams” – Newspaper
    and commingled containers – and puts them
    together in one bin.
In Other Words . . . . . .

    All items that are
     acceptable for recycling
     can now be put together
     in one trash can that
     you can place at the
     curb for your regular
     assigned pickup days
Town To Receive Part of the Profit

   These commingled materials will then be
    hauled to a processing plant specifically
    designed to mechanically separate the mixed
    materials so they may be sold and re-
