Recycling Center

Recycling Center

The Town Recycling Center is located on Hwy N, adjacent to the north side of the Town Hall and is a convenience for Town of Bristol residents.  An attendant is staffed during open hours to answer questions and to monitor the facility. With the purchase of a recycling permit, a resident can dispose their trash and recyclables.  Bristol contracts with Pellitteri Waste Systems for the handling of the materials received.  Please review their website and Town of Bristol's flyer for more information on properly disposing materials.

The Recycling Center is for the use by Town of Bristol residents only.

Identification is required to use the facility.

The Centers gate will close sharp at the posted hour, leave yourself enough time to dispose of your items and exit before the closing time.

If you have any questions call the Town Hall at 608-837-6494.
