THERE IS A DIFFERENCE!
Please be mindful of what is going into your recycling bin. USA Hauling has reported many bins with household trash and other non-recyclables in them. If non-recyclable items are found in your bin, USA hauling will not empty your container and the Town could face a fine. For information on what to put in the recycling bin, visit our website. www.townofcolebrook.org or call Karen Odell for more information 860-379-3359 Ext. 201.
