    1. Hi, I’m sorry about that Rick. It’s definitely not a common term. It means you won’t have to separate your glass, plastic and metal. If Southold decides to go forward with it, you will only need one recycling bin for “comingled containers.” A lot of other towns on the East End are already doing this.
