Recycling Bylaw Enforcement Begins July 1, 2012

As a reminder, participation in Wilmington's recycling program is mandatory under the Town's current "Recycling By-Law" which is included in the "By-laws of the Inhabitants of the Town of Wilmington, Revised", Chapter 5, Section 2A. The by-law states in part:

"...residents of every household are required to separate recyclable material from the solid waste stream...Failure to separate recyclable material from the solid waste stream may result in failure of the solid waste collection contractor to collect solid waste from the residence which violates this By-Law."
