CRRA expands list of accepted items

Residents of the 54 towns that recycle with the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority can now place large rigid plastic items and books in recycling bins.

The CRRA’s single-stream recycling facility will now accept large toys, beverage crates, laundry baskets, recycling bins, telephone directories, storage containers and hard-cover books.

Any of these items that fit inside the single-stream barrel can be recycled, provided that all metals such as bucket handles and wheel axles are separated from the plastic items, all items are rinsed and clean and covers from hardcover books are removed and placed in the trash.
