Single Stream Recycling

Single Stream Recycling Comes to Hooksett!

Single stream recycling is a program that allows all recycled materials to be mixed, saving storage space and making disposal easier by dumping in one container. Plastic containers marked 1-7, newspapers, junk mail, magazines, cardboard, steel cans, aluminum cans, and glass bottles can all be stored together then dumped together. No plastic bags or styrofoam please. Recycling saves the Town money that is spent on trash disposal costs. The goal of single stream recycling is to make it more convenient and to get more residents to participate. Easily 60% of trash generated can be recycled. If residents make the effort to bring the recycling here to the facility or to the mobile recycling trailer we can all help to keep costs down.
