Do I still need to separate recyclables?

No. With single stream recycling you will no longer need to bag or bundle paper and cardboard, or separate plastic and glass, simply place all your acceptable recyclables into your container and wheel it to the curb. Please remember to rinse glass and plastic containers prior to placing them in the container. Also, remember that items not placed in the recycling container will not be collected. For more information, please call 860-667-5874.
