CUTCHOGUE RECYCLING CENTER MOVES TO 3-STREAM RECYCLING:

See video on Southold Government Channel 22 for details

As you may have heard, Long Island is in a recycling crisis.  Due to changing market conditions, mixed “single stream” recyclables are no longer marketable due to contaminants from broken glass and garbage.  The Town therefore will have to return to accepting only recyclables pre-sorted by residents.  In the coming weeks, bins at the Transfer Station will be re-arranged to accept sorted recyclables into 3 categories as follows:

  • Mixed CLEAN Paper (Cardboard/Newspaper/Office Paper/Magazines/Catalogs/Mail)
  • Mixed CLEAN Tin Cans/Aluminum Cans and Trays/Plastic Bottles #1 and #2 ONLY
  • CLEAN Glass bottles

IMPORTANT:

  • IF AN ITEM IS NOT IN ONE OF THESE CATEGORES, IT GOES WITH GARBAGE!  
  • IF AN ITEM IS DIRTY OR SOILED WITH FOOD RESIDUE, IT GOES WITH GARBAGE!

PLEASE BE PREPARED TO DEPOSIT YOUR RECYCLABLES SORTED IN THIS MANNER BEGINNING MONDAY, DECEMBER 17.

For residents who cannot sort their recyclables by that date, the facility will still accept them mixed together until February 1.
