A note left in your garbage

WRENTHAM

Wrentham residents may soon find some of their trash left at the curb with a little note on it.

Starting in October, trash collectors will place a sticker on recyclable materials, such as cardboard and plastic containers, and leave them to be recycled.

The green sticker reads, "Sorry, we are unable to pick up this item with your trash," and provides instructions on how to leave cardboard for recycling.

"It is to increase and save the town money in the process," said Maureen Osolnik, a member of the Wrentham Recycling Committee. While the town pays to dispose of trash, recycling is free to the town.
