To the east of the Grange hall on the west side of the Halcott Highway Garage, the Recycling Center is always open.
Cans and metal are collected in barrels. Tin cans, glass and plastic food containers should be rinsed before deposit.
Newspaper, magazines and cardboard are to be separated and can either be placed in paper bags or tied in bundles. Boxes should be flattened before bundling.
We now accept electronics for recycling. A shed is on site for acceptable electronics including: computers (desktops & laptops), printers, scanners, copiers, fax machines, televisions (CRT, LCD, LED, plasma), cell phones, IT & networking equipment, medical & lab equipment, communications equipment, phones, servers, monitors (CRT, LCD, LED), MP3 players, PDA’s, tablets, ink and toner cartridges, and pretty much anything else with a circuit board or cord!
The Town of Halcott offers a weekly drop-off service for those who choose not to contract with a hauler to pick up your garbage. Halcott residents only, that is, renters and landowners, may take bags of household waste in clear plastic bags, at $3 a bag, to the transfer station located at the Highway Garage. The hours of this mini transfer station will be 10 AM to 12 noon every Sunday. Instead of cash, we will be using punch cards. One punch card will allow the deposit of three bags of trash and may be purchased at $9 each from our Town Clerk, Pattie Warfield, 254-6441. Her hours are: 3 – 5pm Wednesdays; and 10 – 12 noon the 3rd Saturday of every month. Cards may also be purchased from Sam’s Country Store at $10 each. Punch cards will not be available at the transfer station and trash will not be accepted without a punch card. Please bear with us as we get this system up and running. Recyclables may be deposited, as usual, at same location free of charge. Help Halcott stay clean and please report any abuses.
