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.
