Bay State Textiles-
keep clothing, shoes, stuffed animals out of the trash!
Bay State Textiles (BST) wants the good, bad and the ugly textiles- just NOT moldy or damp. BST will pay $100 /ton for our textiles. Textiles are shipped to other countries (for profit.) The women in these communities depend on our textiles, which they re-purpose and sell as a way of creating their own business.
The Town of Norwood, the Norwood Public Schools, and Bay State Textiles are partnering efforts to keep textiles out of the trash! BST boxes are at the compost site (open every Saturday) as well as at each of the schools including the Savage Bldg and the Willett preschool. Place all donated textiles in plastic bags and secure up top, then toss bags into any of the textile collection boxes.
do not place Styrofoam in any kind in town recycling carts. Styrofoam is a major contaminant in the single stream recycling loads leaving Norwood. Recycling carts will be stickered if Styrofoam is in inside. Styrofoam must be recycled separately at one of the three recycling drop off events in Norwood.
Rechargeable batteries can be dropped off for recycling at any Staples, Home Depot, Radioshack, and Apple Store Legacy Place. Want to read more re Rechargeable Battery Take Back Program, go to Call2Recycle and learn more.
It's the law to recycle.
In an effort to conserve and protect natural resources,the MA Department of Environmental Protection has issued state waste bans,which require residents & businesses to recycle materials.
1. The Town of Norwood is required by law to comply with MA State Waste Bans. Your recycling efforts and cooperation are necessary and appreciated. If what's inside your recycling cart is noted as being in non-compliance, your cart will be stickered by the Waste Management drivers. If non compliance continues, you will receive a formal letter from DPW. If non compliance becomes chronic, the town reserves the right to refuse trash and recycling services and remove carts from said property.
2. Property owners of mixed use properties MUST hire their own private trash/recycling hauler for all of its commercial/business waste. Business waste is NOT accepted in Norwood's residential trash and recycling contract.
