News from the State of CT DEEP re: Recycling
The State of Connecticut has posted this updated guide based on its solid waste management requirements. Any questions on specifics not covered in the link below should be directed to the DEEP Recycling Program at 860-424-3366 or through their website at http://www.ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp….
There has been notice in the news lately that the recycling market is being contaminated with non-recyclable waste. In particular, these improper items include plastic bags, yard waste, textiles and other non-recyclable plastic. Please do not put your recycling in a plastic bag; plastic bags are recyclable through most grocery stores.
We want to remind residents that yard waste (except grass clippings) can be brought to the Hoffman Road Brush Drop-off Center, and textiles are accepted at the Town Garage.
Please check the following State of CT link for more details of exactly what is and isn't accepted in regular recycling: http://www.recyclect.com/
