Single-Stream Recycling


West Haven has single-stream recycling. The West Haven Energy Commission (WHEC) aims to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and help West Haven residents to be more knowledgeable about what can be recycled, composted, trashed or taken to a different site. To do this, we need your help. Click on the recycling links below for details.
