Ellington uses single-stream recycling collection carts. The recycling collection carts will make it easier to recycle more material. Residents can place all of their paper and mixed containers into the large blue cart. Place the cart within 2 feet of the road and 3 to 4 feet from obstructions. Recycling will be collected every other week.
