Do you know that your curbside recycling bin may include more than catalogs, magazines, and newspapers? During this past year newly acceptable material for curbside pickup include office/school paper, junk mail, newspaper inserts and non metallic wrapping paper. Flattened gray board boxes: cereal, cracker, cookie boxes, etc. which do not have waxed or foil interiors and which have cellophane removed may also go into your bin for weekly pickup. Mixed paper and gray board boxes can be placed in a brown paper grocery bag along with your newspapers. The flattened gray board boxes can also be bundled with corrugated cardboard. You may also continue to bring these items, along with white paper, to the Town Garage on the first Saturday of each month between 9:00 A.M. and noon. The North Branford Recycling Center is located across from the Public Works Building on Forest Road in North Branford. When visiting the recycling center you will notice a special bin, labeled for phone books only. It is found outside the Paper Recycling Center.  There is also "GOT BOOKS" bin to recycle books (not textbooks) and CDs.

Free Recycle Bin for new residents

Welcome to North Branford!

New residents in our town will be receiving a post card/coupon from the North Branford Hazardous Waste and Recycling Committee. This will entitle them to a gift of a new recycling bin for their home. Along with the bin will come a packet of information outlining activities and resources in the community of North Branford and the recycling programs we offer. The staff of volunteers is looking forward to greeting their new neighbors at the North Branford Recycling Center where they may redeem their coupon for the bin. The center is open on the first Saturday of each month from 9 am to noon. It is located on Forest Road across from the North Branford Public Works Building.
