Meet Bob Hanna!

Bob brings to his job as New Milford’s first Recycling Manager a wealth of experience in recycling, waste management and executive-level management.

An Army Veteran (1975-1985), Bob has also been a valuable volunteer in the New Milford Community: Chairman, New Milford Village Fair days (2011-2017); Volunteer, New Milford Village Fair days (1996-2011); Past President, Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce; Past Member, New Milford Traffic Authority; and Chairman, New Milford Fireworks Committee (2014-Present).

He has a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), a Forklift License and he is a licensed Transfer Station Operator and Public Weigher.

Stop by and say hello!

What NOT to Put in Recycling

MATTRESS RECYCLING :  What does it mean to users of the Recycling Center?    The drop-off of mattresses and box-springs will be free ONLY if they don’t have any visible contamination, infestation or dirt.    If they do, they have  to go into Bulky Waste and the current fees will apply. This program began on July 1, 2015.
