  • Glass Pilot

    Public Act 18-181, Section 12 authorizes a 2-year pilot program for municipalities to collect glass separately from blue bin "curbside" recyclables. The legislation seeks to test the efficacy of removing glass from the blue bin to improve the quality of glass recaptured as well as the quality of the other recyclables in the blue bin.

    The pilot is under the direction of DEEP and may go live on or after October 1, 2018.

    Want to know what kind of glass is recyclable? Check out this handy placard, provided by CRC Member Strategic Materials!

  • The Wrap Recycling Action Program (WRAP) is a national public awareness and outreach initiative designed to make plastic film – including wraps, bags, and flexible packaging – a commonly recycled material with a strong and ever-growing recycling rate.

    WRAP works with stakeholders including local and state governments, retailers, and material recovery facilities (MRFs) to educate consumers about what types of plastic film are recyclable, and how and where to recycle it.

    Many successful WRAP campaigns across the U.S. - including Connecticut - have helped communities keep plastic film out of their MRFs and increase the amount of plastic film collected for recycling at drop-off locations.

    The WRAP Campaign is growing in momentum and CT DEEP recently released the 2017 Connecticut WRAP Campaign Report
