Recycler of the Month Contest!

Entries are currently being accepted for September's drawing for the Recycler of the Month Contest. It could be you! Please click  here  and follow the prompts.

Bay State Textiles wants the Good, the Bad and the Ugly!

Textile collection boxes have been placed at each of the Norwood Public Schools. The Winter Street Compost Site will also maintain 2 textile collection boxes for residents on Saturdays. Bay State Textiles wants clothes with missing buttons, broken zippers, ripped or stain clothes as well as out of date clothes. Donate all if your textiles except if they are smelly and moldy. Place donated textiles in bags and place in textile collection box.

Pumpkins are organic waste. Norwood residents are asked to NOT throw their pumpkins in the trash (or recycling) cart this year, but instead place your pumpkin (cut or sliced up) in the brown paper leaf bags for curbside pick up or drop off at the Winter Street Compost Site.  Cutting up the pumpkins will accelerate the decomposition process. Be sure candles and other decorations are removed before placing in leaf bags or dropping off at compost site.

Foam (styrofoam) Recycling - the next foam recycling event is scheduled for Saturday, December 27th from 10am to 3pm. Please go to to review acceptable foam products.

If you can help us find a local farm who will accept school lunch waste, please email me at
