The Department of Public Works (DPW) has sent out recycling notices to 1-6 family property owners whose tenants are violating recycling laws. Your property has been provided with blue recycling carts for City collection, and these must be used for acceptable recyclables in accordance with state and local law. Acceptable recyclables are listed on the back side of the recycling notice.
Why did I receive this letter?
The DPW has computer reports providing information on which properties do and do not use their blue recycling carts. Our report indicated your property as one that does not place its carts on the curb for collection.
Why should my property recycle?
Just by recycling, your property can save the City of Hartford $69 per ton of material that is not placed in trash bins! Recycling is also the law. You could face fines if the problem continues.
Where can I find more information on recycling requirements and this letter?
DPW’s Sanitation Inspector, Edna Alers, can provide literature and tenant training. You can contact her at
or call 311 or (860) 757-9311 for City Services and Information if you have further questions.
