MARSTONS MILLS – The Town of Barnstable will implement single-stream recycling and recycling-only stickers at its Transfer Station in Marstons Mills.
The changes are part of an effort to make recycling easier for residents and, therefore, increase the town’s recycling rates.
The change comes as the town starts their new contract with New Bedford Waste Services on January 1.
Barnstable Energy Coordinator Richard Elrick said the changes will solve common problems that people have when trying to sort their recyclables.
He said, with single stream recycling, residents will no longer have to separate their recyclables as they can all be combined for disposal.
Proof of residency or vehicle registration is needed to obtain a recycling-only sticker at the transfer station office.
