All residents should have received the revised 2017 Sanitation Brochure that was mailed in early January. We hope the format makes it easier to read and you find the information you’re looking for. Unfortunately, we forgot to include three important collection efforts in the brochure. One is that you can now recycle textiles, shoes and leather; such as handbags and belts at the Recycling Center at Maxwell Avenue. Secondly, the Furniture Sharehouse has a trailer at the Recycling Center for your used furniture that meets their requirements. Thirdly, you can bring your used vegetable oil to the Town Yard where it will used to heat the mechanics area of the shop. So, clothes, shoes, leather goods, furniture and vegetable oil are all recyclable.
