Recycling collection to begin early


Trash-BarrelsNAUGATUCK — Crews will start recycling collections at 5 a.m. through Friday due to equipment breakdown, according to a release from the public works department.

Workers will have to collect recycling manually, without the automated trucks, and will be starting early due to the extreme heat, according to the department.

Residents are asked, as always, to place materials curbside by midnight the night before collections and leave three feet of space between containers and any other objects.

Contact the public works office at (203) 720-7071 with questions.
