Recycling and Sustainability

About the Recycling Program

The Recycling Division is actively involved in recycling as mandated by the state‚Äôs Select Committee on Recycling and Environment (SCORE). This program is unique in that it is city operated, but funded from a State SCORE grant. Our focus is on residential and small business recycling and our programs are set up to help each with every aspect of recycling and waste reduction.
