Orange offers multiple ways for residents to recycle. Many recyclables can go in the blue residential bins, also there is recycling at the town Transfer Station. TheOrange Recycling Committee (ORC) is
dedicated to increasing recycling options. We are pleased to share the following tips and information.
Annual Shredding & Mattress Recycling Day is April 28, 2018, from 9AM - Noon at High Plains Community Center. FREE! Check back for details
To obtain an additional resident recycling bin, please contact Public Works office at 203-891-4712. The cost is $50.00 per bin.
Plastic bags and wraps - DO NOT put in your recycling bin. Put clean, dry plastic film packaging, bags and wraps in designated bins at local stores or the plastic bag recycling shed at the Transfer Station. Shed is located on your left at the bottom of the hill.
This is a reminder to put your container out at the curb the NIGHT BEFORE your scheduled day. The pick up time is sometimes very early, this will assure your bin is not missed.
When a holiday falls on your pickup day, your pickup will be on the next day, and the rest of the week will be a day later. If needed Friday pick up will be on Saturday. Monday holidays will not impact the pick up schedules for the week.
Greater participation in recycling has a two-fold impact: more recycling revenue and less disposal costs. Orange Recycling Committee Chairman Mitch Goldblatt explains, "Increased recycling by residents has an absolute direct impact on the town's bottom line and our property taxes."
What is the easiest way for Orange residents to recycle? Single-stream! Single-stream recycling is a system in which recyclable materials - newspaper, magazines, glass, steel, aluminum and plastic - are placed, unsorted, in one recycling bin and picked up curbside weekly. That's convenient!
