[ARCHIVED] Single Stream Recycling in Blue Bins Announced

Residents may begin to engage in single stream disposal of recyclables immediately in their Blue Bins.

Your private haulers are aware of this change. A Town-wide information program is under development and will be distributed soon.

All plastics, cardboard, newspapers, magazines, advertising inserts and clean glass and cans may be co-mingled in the Blue Bins.

If greater capacity is needed, additional Bins may be purchased at the Highway Department for $5.00

Thank you from the Trumbull Public Works Department
