CHANGE IN TOWN RECYCLING REQUIREMENTS
NOTICE: CHANGE IN TOWN RECYCLING REQUIREMENTS
Effective immediately recyclables can no longer be placed in plastic bags for pickup. Moving forward recycling should be collected in a can that is not larger than 32 gallons, which is the Town’s code size restriction for both solid waste and recycled materials. Recyclables placed in cardboard boxes continue to be acceptable.
The reason for the change: The facility that the Town of Cornwall utilizes to dispose of collected recyclables requires us to reduce the amount of materials in each load that are classified as unrecyclable; the thin film plastics such as garbage bags and shopping bags frequently used by residents to place their recyclables curbside are no longer acceptable at the facility.
Guidelines pertaining to recycling can be found on our website Cornwallny.com The sanitation department can also be reached by calling 845-534-2171.
