RECYCLING GUIDELINES


RESOURCES

 

AUTOMATED RECYCLING

    • Automated single stream recycling containers are provided by the Town of Cheshire.   Click here for the policy and fees for replacement or additional containers. 
    • Recycling is picked up every other week.
    • Plastic bags are not recyclable in the single stream system.  DO NOT place plastic bags in the recycling containers.  DO NOT put recyclables into the containers in plastic bags.  (Bags may be returnable to some stores for recycling.)
    • All recyclables, including cardboard, must be INSIDE the containers. Material that is not in the container cannot be picked up.
    • The container lid must be closed.  Do not overload the container.
    • Place your container as close to the curb as possible, with the wheels away from the street and the lid opening toward the street ("street side" is printed on the top of the lid). Leave a three feet buffer around the container. 
    • Place containers out before 5:30 a.m on your collection day.  Pick up times can vary from week to week.
