City Of Windsor Named As New Recycling Collection Contractor For Essex County

The Essex-Windsor Solid Waste Authority announced Tuesday that the City of Windsor is the new recycling collection contractor for Essex County.

Essex-Windsor Solid Waste Authority officials say that although nothing has changed in the recycling schedule, residents may experience different collection times with the new contractor.

To avoid a missed collection, residents are reminded to place their recycling boxes out for collection no later than 6:00am on their scheduled collection day. In the event the new contractor is experiencing an extreme delay (i.e. weather, truck issue), the EWSWA will push out notifications via the Recycle Coach App to inform County residents.

The recycling program will remain the same with the no plastic bag ban in effect, so any recycling boxes containing plastic bags will not be collected. “Oops Stickers” will continue to be used on County recycling collection boxes/carts to notify the residents of any issues or incorrect material in the recycle boxes. The Oops Stickers will identify any reason for a recycle box being left at the curb “uncollected.”
