Residents are now encouraged to separate their glass from other recyclables as part of a new effort to reduce contamination, save money and make recycling safer and more effective. Under the new pilot program, residents can voluntarily take their glass recyclables out of the single-stream recycling and instead bring it to a special bin at the town’s transfer station at Richard White Way, where it has a better chance of actually being recycled, according to the Sustainable Fairfield Task Force. The program was designed by the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
