Bristol to Discuss The Increasing Costs and Significant Global Changes Affecting Recycling in the City

DPW went to visit a local Girl Scout troop. They went through all the recycle programs to earn the recycle badge.

The Public Works Department continues its educational informational sessions in June. This month, residents can learn about recycling and composting in an effort to decrease the amount of waste at the Transfer Station.

Based on the increasing costs and significant global changes affecting recycling, the City of Bristol’s Public Works Department is hosting a “Recycling 101 Workshop” on June 27 from 6:30pm-7:30pm.

Sherill Baldwin from CT DEEP will be presenting attendees with an update on what does and doesn’t go into the blue recycle bins.

With the recent success of the Composting Workshop, Alastair Ong of UConn Extension Master Gardner Center will make a return appearance to lead the workshop on worm composting bins. “If you’re just starting out as a worm farmer, this is the workshop for you”, stated Lindsey Rivers, Public Works Analyst.

“These initiatives have been quite successful helping our community understand the importance of recycling and composting”, said Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu.

Please contact the Department of Public Works at 860-584-6125 to reserve a seat and learn what tools will be provided and/or needed. Pre-registration is required for the Worm Composting Bin Workshop as space is limited for this workshop.
