RECYCLING: From Winters Bros responding to recycle questions: "We have separate trucks dispatched to Ansonia for household Garbage (MSW) and Single Stream recycling. So we do ask that you separate your regular household trash, like food items from single stream recyclables like paper, plastic, metal, cardboard and glass. Single stream means that we can accept all recyclable items together, so you don't have to bundle your paper and keep it separate from your glass. Our machines in Shelton will sort that material. It does not mean that you should place recyclables in your regular garbage. One of our trucks will pick up garbage and a separate truck will come back if you have recyclables out.
