Recyclables (mixed paper, plastic and glass) are collected on Mondays.  Recyclables should be separated or they will not be collected.  Paper should be separated from commingled materials such as plastic and glass.  Please note that our contractor does not have trucks that pick up the large paper bins on wheels.  The weight of the filled containers become hard to lift.  Please refrain from using these containers.  Recycling bins are available at the Town Hall.  You may have more than one.  Paper may also be placed in cardboard boxes for recycling pick-up.
