Residents are asked to do their part in following all updated signage and social distancing measures while at the facility.  The threat of COVID-19 is real, and it’s important that residents take precautions to avoid spreading the virus. Please maintain a safe social distance (6 feet) from staff and each other at all times, and remain inside vehicles unless depositing waste in the bins.  

Residents looking to get a facility sticker can now do so in-person at the Town Hall Customer Service Center, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM or contact-free by applying online here.

Residents are encouraged to sort plastics before arriving at the facility.  Pre-sorting of plastics will significantly reduce wait times during peak hours. As a reminder, acceptable plastics include:

#2 HPDE Colored - Containers such as laundry detergent, shampoo containers, and white milk jugs.

The Resource Recovery Facility does not accept drinking cups, straws or anything black.  These unacceptable materials can now go into household trash.
