NEW SERVICE BEGINS JUNE 14, 2010

YOUR NEW SCHEDULED PICK UP WILL BE THE “A” WEEK

PLEASE SEE REVERSE SIDE FOR CALENDAR AND NEW PICK UP SCHEDULE

 

Dear West Hartford Resident:

 

The Town of West Hartford will be implementing a new residential automated curbside single stream recycling collection system.  This program will help control costs and increase recycling participation by making it easier and more convenient for residents.  In an effort to make this a smooth transition, we have listed pertinent information below on how the new system will operate:

 

This is your new 95 gallon blue container which will become your new recycle barrel starting June 14, 2010. 

 

As of June 14, 2010, your recycle collection will be done every two weeks on the same day as your trash collection.  Recycle collections will be done utilizing an “A” and “B” week schedule.  Your recyclables will be collected during the “A” week.  Please see the calendar on the reverse side for collection schedules.  Trash collection will continue to be done weekly. 

 

Trash and recycle routes begin at 6:00 am so please have your barrel(s) out early.  We recommend putting them out the night before.  Place the barrel(s) within two (2) feet of the curb with the arrows on the lid facing the street.  The handle used to maneuver the barrel should be facing your home.  Please place the barrel(s) at least two (2) feet apart and away from any obstacles like mailboxes and landscape structures.

 

You may keep your existing recycle bin to use inside your home for your recyclables.  If you do not wish to keep your bin, you may drop it off at the Department of Public Works, 17 Brixton St., West Hartford.  Do not dispose of unwanted bins in your blue recycling barrel or your trash barrel.  Keep in mind, once automated single stream recycle service starts, you will not be able to place this recycle bin by the curb for pick-up.  All recyclables must be placed in your 95 gallon blue barrel for automated curbside collection.

 

Remember, your new service does not begin until June 14, 2010 so please continue to use your current recycle containers until that time.
