Recycling is collected curbside from residential buildings with six or fewer units. Recyclables only may be placed in the large blue toter, and trash is to be placed exclusively in the brown toter. Lists of items that can be recycled are listed below. To learn more about how single stream recycling works, you can watch this video from RecycleBank.
This outside resource has been provided for educational purposes only, and the City of New Haven's program is not affiliated with RecycleBank. With a few exceptions (for example, shredded paper, which the city does accept), the process and recyclables accepted are the same.
