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
  • Citizen involvement in getting trash off of our streets
