************************************

THE RECYCLING PLAZA HAS REOPENED. 

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Wellfleet has temporarily switched its recycling to Single Stream.  What does that mean?

It means that you can put your Cardboard, Mixed Paper, Plastic Containers, Tin cans, and Glass Containers all into one place.  Our goal is to get people in and out of the facility quickly and safely during this health emergency.

The type of items that can be recycled HAS NOT changed.  You just get to put most of them into one place. As always, items must be clean and dry in order to be recycled.

Click on recyclesmartma.org for questions on what is recyclable.

Bulky Rigid Plastics and all black plastics are NOT part of Single Stream and must still be separated.  The Bulky Rigid Plastic Bin has a temporary new home, closer to the Trash Hopper, and its own parking spot.

OTHER THINGS TO KNOW.

To promote social distancing, we have blocked several of the parking spaces in the recycling area.  We have added two dumpsters with additional parking spaces over by the swap shop.  These are for Single Stream recycling as well. 

You can use either the compactors or the dumpsters for recycling, it does not matter.

You must use a designated parking space.  Only one vehicle at a time per drop-off point.

Please always keep 6 feet apart from others.

The Returnable Bottles and Cans area is still closed.

As always, the Recycling Area will close at 3:30 every day.

UNIVERSAL WASTE

The table to drop off batteries, mercury, fluorescent bulbs, anti-freeze, motor oil, latex and oil-based paint and stain IS OPEN. 

However, there is a separate parking space which you must use to access it.  There will be a sign as you come in pointing toward the spot. 

COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS

The Commercial Recycling compactor IS OPEN.  It has been changed to Single Stream recycling. 

RESIDENTIAL FOOD WASTE COMPOSTING

We have been able to continue Residential Food Waste Composting.  The GREEN Food Waste Compost bin is back in place next to the Universal Waste Shed (Where the light bulbs and batteries go).  The same rules as before apply to what goes into the bin.  NO BAGS OR TRASH PLEASE.  

Thank you for being patient and please be safe.
