Proper Waste Disposal Procedures

Curbside collection users and Transfer Station users are reminded to properly bag their disposal materials (paper bag for mixed paper products and cardboard - no plastic grocery bags). ~Mixed loads (e.g., solid waste with recyclables or bulky materials mixed with solid waste) disposed of at the Transfer Station must be separated or the attendant has the right to charge for the highest cost materials in the load. ~Accepted recycling products may be mixed but cannot be contained in plastic bags (plastic bags are NOT recyclable). Willimantic Waste and All Waste Control have been alerted that mixed loads picked up at the curbside will be rejected, therefore their haulers have been instructed to ensure recyclables are properly bagged prior to pick-up. ~Your cooperation is appreciated. ~

Cardboard boxes should be flattened and cut to maximum 3 ft. by 3 ft. pieces. Recyclables cannot be disposed of in plastic grocery bags.
