Prior to February of this year, Plainfield was home to approximately 20 clothing drop off bins, many on vacant land, which had become dumping grounds for unwanted household waste. Public work crews were forced away from their regular duties to haul discarded mattresses, televisions, appliances and other non-clothing waste to the dump. Plainfield residents receive 18 permits per year to utilize the town’s bulky waste site. Plainfield recently passed an ordinance that tightened the regulation of clothing drop-off bins. The number of bins around town has dropped significantly from the approximate 20 to 5.
All clothing drop-off bins around town must be emptied regularly, and items not placed into the bins must be removed within 24 hours.
The bins remaining in town are from Planet Aid, and the St. Vincent de Paul Place, both non-profit groups.
