Beyond the Bin
City Hall Recycling Corner - located on the 2nd floor of City Hall.
The City of Middletown accepts various small items for recycling in City Hall. Below is a list of items that are allowed. All items must be segregated. Please note these items cannot go in your recycling cart at home. They can only be recycled if kept separate and brought to the drop off location.
During the 2022 Holiday Season, we are participating in The Rockfall Foundation's Earth Day Every Day Grant Program to recycle wrapping paper. Wrapping paper can be accepted at this location for recycling. Please note wrapping paper is NOT accepted in the curbside recycling and it is better to use reusable wraps or bags, or no wrapping paper at all to limit the amount of resources used and waste generated.
Batteries - These are also accepted at the Recycling Center.
Dunkin Donut Coffee Bags
CFL Bulbs - longer tubes are accepted at the Recycling Center.
CD's, DVDS, cassettes, VHS Tapes in small amounts.
Corks - must be real corks, not synthetic ones.

Plastic bags and plastic film - these can also be brought back to Price Chopper, Aldi, or Stop and Shop
