Norwood residents annually dispose of nearly 2,600 tons into their single stream recycling carts. Most of it is truly recyclable but, there are many things that do not belong in your recycling cart. These "non-recyclable" items cost us more money because it is considered a contaminant in the recycling process and must be separated and disposed of elsewhere.
It can be confusing so we're here to help!
