Trash & Recycling

CURBSIDE PICK-UP

Rolling trash & recyclable carts (you must use the carts that are provided) are picked up every Thursday.  


Curbside pickup for Chaplin is done by Willimantic Waste Paper Company, Inc.  All trash in the household garbage carts must be in bags and carts should be placed 18" from the edge of the road.  It is the resident's responsibility to keep trash cans off the roads on days there is no pickup.


Acceptable Recyclable Items Include:

Cardboard
Juice & Milk Cartons
Paperboard Boxes (e.g, Cereal Boxes, Tissue Boxes, Egg Cartons)

*Many supermarkets provide drop-off bins where they will accept plastic bags for recycling. Or, better yet, get reusable bags for your shopping.

Following this new procedure carefully is not only healthier for the environment; it also can result in savings of $8,000 or more per year for the Town. The Town of Chaplin pays roughly $60,000 a year for trash disposal of some 800 tons. Effective July 1, the Town will be paid at least $5 per ton for all recyclables, while the cost of trash is $72 a ton. Accordingly, this is what's called a win-win type of solution. It definitely does pay for us to recycle.
