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

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.
