Recycle Smart Guide

The Recycle Smart MA program was created by the Massachusetts DEP to provide residents with up to date information about what items should and shouldn’t be recycled.  The Town and other communities have joined the initiative whose website includes a downloadable Smart Recycling Guide and a searchable Recyclopedia that allows residents to search on hundreds of individual items about how they should be properly managed.  

Please visit the Recycle Smart website, thank you for helping the Town realize a goal of generating 3000 tons of clean recyclables in 2023 and reducing disposal costs.


Type the name of a waste item and we'll tell you how to recycle or dispose of it.
