About the Recycling Program

The Recycling Division is actively involved in recycling as mandated by the state’s 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.

What’s New?

Our expansion project is taking slightly longer than planned. Elevated costs and material shortages have pushed the project out of budget. The site plan has been modified and cuts have been made. We are wrapping up final engineering changes and should be getting formal bids in June! Once approved updated plans will be posted! Stay tuned!
