Middletown Public Works Holiday Service Alert
The Middletown Public Works Department has announced the Independence Day Holiday schedule for the Middletown Recycling Center and the Sanitation District Collection.
The Middletown Recycling Center will be closed Monday, July 4, 2022. It will be open Saturday, July 2, from 7:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
The Sanitation District will not be collecting residential trash and recycling on Monday, July 4, 2022. Both trash and recycling will be picked up for Monday and Tuesday customers on Tuesday morning, July 5, 2022. Carts should be put out Monday evening.
The Sanitation District will only pick up the items that fit in the cart. Excess recyclables, including large corrugated boxes, can be brought to the Recycling Center at no charge.
In an effort to reduce waste going to incinerators and landfills, food waste can also be segregated and brought to the Recycling Center or 675 Randolph Road at no charge. Food scraps must be loose or in BPI certified compostable bags or paper bags. No plastic bags or containers are allowed with the food scraps.
Please remember, plastic bags and plastic film are NOT allowed with the curbside recycling. More information on what is acceptable with the recycling, for all of Middletown, is available at www.recyclect.com.
A virtual tour on how to use the Recycling Center can be found here. More details on the Recycling Center can be found here.
Thank you for your cooperation and have a safe and happy holiday.
