Chaplin's Trash & Recycling Center is located at 456 Phoenixville Road (Rt. 198) (Next to the Town Garage)

Hazardous Waste

The majority of Chaplin's trash is incinerated at one of Connecticut's three trash incinerators. Toxic chemicals such as mercury, lead, cadmium & brominated fire retardants can potentially pollute the air during the incineration process, or the soil and water where the ash residue is land filled. Half of Connecticut's mercury pollution comes from our trash incinerators!

Most hazardous waste should be taken to the MidNEROC Chemical Waste Facility in Willington.  This includes the following items:

Cell Phones*
Fluorescent Bulbs (tubes and compact fluorescent)**
Household Cleaners
Paints (oil-based, lead)


Rechargeable Batteries*

(alkaline batteries can go in household trash)

*Rechargeable batteries and cell phones may also be recycled at no cost at many retailers, including Home Depot, Staples, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Whole Foods Market, & Ikea.

**Fluorescent bulbs may also be recycled at no cost at Home Depot, Ace Hardware & Ikea.

This practice is also a way of reducing waste while, at the same time, creating a product useful as a garden mulch, soil amendment, or potting mix. Fruit and vegetable peels, cores or rinds and other non- animal kitchen scraps can be combined with grass clippings, leaves, weeds & other biodegradable materials to make this product. Much information is generally available on the best methods of establishing a compost area. A useful website to visit is www.compostinfo.com.
