Single Stream Required: Each of these haulers is required to pick up recycling and trash at the same time in a split packer truck which keeps trash separated from recyclables. Paper, plastic, cardboard, glass, aluminum, etc. all goes into one bin, and everything you don't goes into a separate bin.
- We require Single Stream Recycling (all recyclables clean and dry in one bin)
- You choose from a licensed list of haulers to contract for your trash and recycling pick up
- If you're a senior (65+) and you don't want weekly curbside pickup, you may purchase a book of Senior Refuse Coupons in the Clerk's office to bring your trash and recycling to the Recycling Center in Bedford Hills
