Changes for 2021
Single Stream Recycling Reminders
The recycling industry has undergone significant changes affecting curbside single stream collection which substantially limits the items being accepted for recycling across many communities.
- Only plastic number 1 and number 2 are accepted
- No plastic bags are accepted
- Shredded paper is not accepted
- Containerize your recycling to minimize contamination
- All acceptable items may be commingled in a container (no plastic bags)
While there are currently no markets for plastics number 3 through number 7, the Town will continue to monitor alternative solutions for these items within the industry. Look through a full list of acceptable and non-acceptable items.
