Norwood's Single Stream Recycling Program

What is Single Stream Recycling?
Single Stream Recycling (SSR) is simply a method of collecting "curbside" recyclables.  SSR allows for all curbside recyclables (the same materials we sorted out into bins) to be placed together in ONE cart.  The curbside automated single stream recycling program is designed to collect MORE of the same recyclable materials in one cart! This collection system is designed to makes it easier and less time consuming for residents, while increasing the opportunity to recover and recycle more materials in the 96g recycling cart.
Click Recycle Right to learn what materials are accepted in the recycle cart.
2nd Recycling Carts are available to Norwood residents at NO charge!
If you find your recycle cart is full by the end of the 2nd week and you are tossing recyclable materials in the trash, then call for a 2nd recycle cart. Its free! Call the General Manager's office at 1.781.762.1240 and speak with Dorothy about obtaining a 2nd recycling cart.
Please don't allow any curbside recyclable materials to be thrown in the trash.

Did you know? Everyone can reduce their trash simply by diverting curbside recyclables to the 96g recycling cart, you can reduce your trash by 50- 75% saving taxpayer dollars! We save on recycling tonnages (it costs less to recycle) and we save by reducing trash!
