Windsor's recycling site now accepts metal appliances including: refrigerators, freezers (refrigerant must be removed and tagged by a certified technician),dishwashers, stoves, washers, dryers, microwaves, garbage disposers, trash compactors, furnaces and water heaters.
The service and proceeds from the metal recycling are provided by Zarephath a local non-profit.
The Town also improved the recycling site’s efficiency by adding a compactor that accepts co-mingled recyclables. This will help reduce expenses to operate the site since the Town must pay a service charge when the recycling box is full. Adding a compactor has significantly decreased this service charge, which previously required pickup eight times per month and now only needs to be serviced once every two months. In addition, the Town has added another recycling box for low grade paper.
