Can I Recycle That?

You may have seen a recent Boston Globe article about how changes in China’s recycling-industry practices have led to recycling complications here in Massachusetts. Australia, Japan, and the United Kingdom, among others, have also been affected. This is a large-scale global supply-chain issue, but you can do your part here in Somerville by making sure you’re recycling the right things in the right way. Use our online Waste Wizard to refresh your memory about what can and can’t be recycled, and please be cooperative about what you recycle (e.g., don’t throw old lobster buoys in your blue bin).
