No more putting recyclable paper and cardboard in a separate bin.
No more putting recyclable cans, bottles, and plastics in a separate bin.
No need to put out two recycling containers if all your paper, cardboard, cans, bottles and plastics will fit in one.

Thanks to new technology and new trucks, everything that your household recycles can now go in the same container. In the recycling world, the term is “single stream”. The sorting technology and workers in the sorting plants do the separation, with conveyor belts carrying each type of recyclable to a different place.

The main reason heard from residents who don’t recycle is that it is too much trouble for them to sort their recyclables and that the bins take up too much room with paper and junk mail in one bin and everything else in another. Now there is absolutely no excuse not to take part. And recycling is mandatory!

Mandatory recycling assures we get recyclables out of the trash and therefore out of the incinerator in North Andover where the town pays an additional fee for every ton of trash taken there.
