Last spring, the City of Norwalk issued new guidelines for recycling in response to the dramatic changes in the recycling business. Almost a year later, some confusion remains about what belongs in the blue recycling bin and what should be relegated to the trash. Note that plastic bags are NOT welcome in the blue bin as they are detrimental to the sorting machinery. Now that they have been banned in Norwalk, we expect fewer around to muck up the recycling works, but please remember to shake recyclables out of the plastic bag used to collect them and stash IT in the trash. Here is the full list of what should be IN the bin and what should be OUT.
