Expanded recycling program

Manchester - posted Feb, 03 2014

MANCHESTER - Residents in the town of Manchester that have town-provided curbside recycling services can now recycle a number of additional items in their blue recycling carts. Recycling now includes rigid plastics: clean five-gallon pails; large plastic toys; milk/beverage crates; laundry baskets; waste baskets/old recycling bins; and plastic storage containers. The expansion also includes books: hard-cover books (covers removed and placed in trash); soft-cover books; and telephone directories. To be recycled properly, these additional steps are required: items must fit or be sized to fit inside the blue single-stream barrel; covers from hard-cover books must be removed and placed in the trash; all metals such as bucket handles and wheel axles must be separated from plastic items. Town residents that no longer wish to receive telephone books can opt-out deliver by visiting the AT&T website: www.YellowPagesOptOut.com. For more information, please contact Brooks Parker by email at bparker@manchesterct.gov, phone at 860-647-5279 or visit the town’s recycling website, www.ManchesterRecycles.org.
