The Town’s Recycling Program annually ranks in the top 10% of Connecticut cities and towns with a total of over
1,100 pounds of recyclables generated per resident and processed annually. In addition, North Haven recycles
over 50% of its municipal solid waste, far surpassing the State’s goal of 40%. This figure attests to North Haven’s
consistent ranking in the State’s top communities in percentage of recyclables.
Effective February 1, 2013, the Town of North Haven entered into a "NO COST" contract with John's Refuse of North Branford for single-stream recyclables collected curbside and at the Town's Recycling Center, including plastics, labeled 1 through 7, mixed paper materials including junk mail and telephone books, glass and metal food and beverage containers, etc.
