Large Recycling Bins Available

If your Vernon recycling cart is smaller than your garbage cart, you can switch to a larger recycling cart.

Is your Vernon recycling cart smaller than your garbage cart? If so, you can obtain a 50% larger recycling cart by calling the Vernon Department of Public Works at 860-870-3500 to arrange a switch.

I've attached a scan of Vernon DPW Director Robert Kleinhans' letter to that effect.

Despite being asked repeatedly over three months, Vernon's administrators have not explained why residents in some Vernon neighborhoods received the smaller recycling carts.

I think it was done just to irritate you......

The recycling container we have is currently large enough, usually taking us about two weeks to fill up. If that changes, I'll look into acquiring a larger one. Seems like a non issue to me.

The container size makes no difference to me. I was surprised at how much money we are saving by recycling. Recycling is good for the pocketbook and good for the planet.
