The City has partnered with MassDEP in an effort to reduce our recycling contamination level. In this endeavor, recycling carts will be inspected and those that do not follow proper recycling guidelines will be tagged and rejected. These carts will need to be removed from the curb and the offending items identified on the tag will need to be removed from the cart. The hauler will not return for an additional collection and the cart will be emptied at the next scheduled collection. Please follow the proper recycling guidelines highlighted here.
