SARAH INC. CLOSES RECYCLING BUSINESS – Collection bins will be removed from their current locations between July 1 and July 15.  

SARAH Inc. is disappointed to announce it will close its recycling business as July 15, 2018.

“We are so proud of our dedicated supported workers,” said SARAH Inc. Executive Director Denise Henry. “This has been a difficult decision but without the expansion of the state of Connecticut’s bottle bill, SARAH RECYCLES is unfortunately an unsustainable business. Despite the lobbying efforts by SARAH Inc. and other recycling business owners, the bottle bill was not expanded.  It is just not economically feasible for our non-profit agency to continue.”

“Our neighbors in our local communities has been outstanding and we are grateful for that support.  We very much appreciate your bottle and can donations over these 10 years,” Henry adds.

SARAH Recycles was an innovative work program with a “green” approach to provide jobs for people with differing abilities. SARAH supported workers collected donated refundable bottles and cans from recycling bins located throughout the area.




With Your Can… We Can!

SARAH Recycles is an innovative work program designed to provide jobs and protect the environment. SARAH supported workers collect donated refundable bottles and cans from recycling bins located across our service area. Each nickel collected goes directly into a paycheck for the work crews. This program has grown tremendously since its humble beginnings. SARAH Recycles now processes over one million units each year!


How You Can Help!

  • Instead of leaving your bottles and cans on the curb, bring them to one of the SARAH Recycles collection bins that are located throughout our service area.
  • Process your refundable bottles and cans at the Redemption Center of America/West Haven and you’ll see our hardworking Recycling Crew in action!

Either way you are helping to provide jobs for people with differing abilities.  We are always looking to expand our recycling efforts by collaborating with municipalities, local businesses and other groups on a variety of “green” projects. Let us know your ideas.
