Manchester cites savings from recycling program

January 07, 1994

The town of Manchester's recycling rate was 18.8 percent in November, says Councilwoman Kathryn L. Riley.

In November, the town sent 79.47 tons of trash to the county landfill. During that month, the town recycled 18.45 tons of other trash, she said, saving $738 in tipping fees.

The figures are for materials recycled at the curbside only, she said.

Mrs. Riley said the amount of garbage the town sent to the landfill in November 1993 was 16.35 tons less than it dumped during November 1992.

Asked what caused the decline, Mrs. Riley said, "I want to think it's the recycling bins."

The Manchester Town Council bought 18-gallon curbside recycling bins for residents last summer with grant money from the state Department of the Environment.
