This is a reminder to put your container out at the curb the night before your scheduled day .
When a holiday falls on your pickup day, your pickup will be on the next day, and the rest of the week will be a day later. If needed Friday pick up will be on Saturday. Monday holidays will not impact the pick up schedules for the week.

Greater participation in recycling has a two-fold impact: more recycling revenue and less disposal costs. Orange Recycling Committee Chairman Mitch Goldblatt explains, "Increased recycling by residents has an absolute direct impact on the town's bottom line and our property taxes."
The easiest way for Orange residents to recycle? Single-stream! Single-stream recycling is a system in which recyclable materials - newspaper, magazines, glass, steel, aluminum and plastic - are placed, unsorted, in one recycling bin and picked up curbside weekly. That's convenient!
Do not put plastic bags in the recycling cart. They are not recyclable thru the pick up. There is now a NEW Plastic Bag recycle area at the transfer station.
You can now recycle batteries and light bulbs at Batteries Plus+ at 481 Boston Post Road, 203-298-9865. Recycled old neon lights will be accepted in quantities of not more than 2.
UPS will recycle packing material used in shipping at their Orange store at 554 Boston Post Road, 203-799-0433.
It is against state regulations to mix recyclables with disposal waste.
All recyclables are to be separated and either put in the blue bins at curbside or taken to the transfer station and deposited in bins marked for recyclables, as posted at the station.
If this is not done, the town may be cited with penalties.
