Materials

The flow of materials through Acton is currently an unsustainable system in many ways:

  • materials that have no way of being reused or recycled are brought in to Acton
  • some materials are hazardous to life, and are brought in quantities too large for safety.
  • our systems for reusing and recycling are incomplete

Green Acton has worked on three main aspects of the flow of materials:

  • reducing the use of plastics
  • improving reuse and recycling options
  • resident involvement in getting trash off of our streets
