IN AN EFFORT TO INCREASE QUALITY OF CURBSIDE RECYCLING, EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2018, LARGE RIGID PLASTICS MUST BE DELIVERED TO THE TOWN'S TRANSFER STATION FOR COLLECTION TO BE RECYCLED. THEY ARE NO LONGER ELIGIBLE FOR CURBSIDE COLLECTION.
Residents in the Town of Manchester that have Town-provided curbside recycling services can now recycle a number of additional items in their blue Recycling carts, specificall Rigid Plastics and Books. These materials are in addition to adding #3 through #7 plastic containers, which was announced in May of 2010. The Town now collects all plastic food, beverage, and household containers #1 through #7, as well as all rigid plastics. Please remember, no plastic films or styrofoam of any kind, even if it has a recycling symbol/number on it.
