You Don’t Have to Put Plastic Bags in the Garbage Anymore!

Now, New Lebanon residents can dispose of these pesky bags and wrappings in a large carton just inside the entrance of Town Hall. You can find the container in the vestibule of Town Hall by the tourism brochures. All plastic must be clean, dry and free of food residue. See the attached flyers for the types of plastic accepted.

Contents of the box will periodically be brought by Climate Smart Task Force members to Chatham’s Price Chopper where NexTrex will pick them up and deliver them to a plant for recycling into decking and outdoor furniture.

Once we have brought in 500 pounds of plastic film, New Lebanon will receive a bench made of the plastic. Start emptying your closets and drawers of bags now!

 Please see here for the two documents which explain what can and can’t be recycled.
