Recycling at Recreation Areas

Almost every day, organized groups — including many young people — gather in large numbers at Acton’s recreation areas. Active play or sports translates to hungry and thirsty people who consume food and drink onsite. What happens when they go to recycle the various left over paper and plastic packaging and containers? In 2014, they could find only trash cans. We can do better!

Green Acton is working with Acton’s Recreation director to provide recycling services at Acton’s recreation areas. This will help divert a lot of recyclable material from the “trash” stream to recycling.
