A special recycling bin is NOT needed for curbside recycling. Residents can use any type of container for recycling as long as it is clearly marked “recycling”. Some commonly used containers are trash cans and plastic totes. Residents are encouraged to repurpose containers around their homes for recycling.
Containers may be marked “recycling” by writing on them with a permanent marker or paint. Residents may also use an official Waterville Recycles sticker to mark their containers. Stickers can be picked up at the Waterville Public Works Office located at 6 Wentworth Ct.
Residents should NOT use the official PAYT bags for recycling. The official PAYT bags are for trash only.
