Caps and Lids on co-mingles: All caps and lids on glass and plastic co-mingles do not have to be removed prior to recycling
Paper Recycling: All clean mixed papers that are acceptable in the curbside recycling program are items such as: Newspapers, Junk Mail, Unbounded notebook paper, computer paper, thin boxes such as cereal boxes, pasta boxes, soda and beer packaging. Greasy pizza boxes are not acceptable, however the clean lid side, can be. Tear it off and pop it in your recycle bin. Corrugated Cardboard is also acceptable, but it should be flattened and cut to fit inside your recycle bin. If it is not flattened it will be discarded by the rubbish personnel of the DPW. Alternatively, you can take any of your recyclables to the Recycle Center on Page Street on Sundays between 8:00-5:00pm.
Energy Conservation Tips
Knowledge is Power, and its as good as cash in your pocket with the Kill-a-Watt Meter, available at the Stoughton Public Library. Head to the Stoughton Public Library to borrow this Ryobi power usage meter, to learn how much power your plug in appliances are using. Use this knowledge you gain to reduce your energy consumption by unplugging certain appliances and save $ and energy. Ask for it at the Librarians Desk.
