WHAT TO RECYCLE?

Vermont state law — Recycling is Mandatory!

DO NOT USE THE OFFICIAL PAYT BAGS FOR RECYCLING.

Please put your curbside materials in appropriate containers (trash, recycling and compostables).  If you do not use the Town provided containers for recycling and compostables be sure your containers are clearly labeled “Recycling” & “Compost.”  Place containers so the labels face the street.

Recycling and composting will help reduce your disposal costs.  There is no charge to the resident for putting out recycling or compost – this service is paid for through property taxes. The more you recycle and compost, the less trash you have to put into the PAYT bags, and the more money you’ll save.

BRATTLEBORO HAS DUAL-STREAM RECYCLING:

  • Please separate paper recycling from cans, bottles & containers by using a paper bag or use two different bins/containers. DO NOT mix the two types of recyclables together.

  • DO NOT recycle plastic bags or put your recyclables into plastic bags.  Plastic bags go in the TRASH or check with local retailers about plastic bag recycling or reuse.

  • It’s OK for your recyclables to get rained on and wet.

For detailed information, please see the Town of Brattleboro’s Trash, Recycling and Compost webpage where documents, such as the Guide to Trash, Recycling, Compost and PAYT are available.
