Recycling is mandatory for all residents and businesses in East Longmeadow. Your hauler must offer trash and recycling services, bundled, but your trash hauler does not have to be your recycling hauler. You must recycle any items from within your establishment, as well as if you collect trash or recycling outside your building. For example, you have a walk way in front of your building with a trash receptacle, you must also have a recycling container(s).
All containers must have a label stating what material type the container is being used to collect. Post and maintain signs in public, staff, maintenance and waste storage areas describing how recyclables and garbage should be separated. All recyclable material must be kept separate from garbage at all times.
