Mission Statement

The Recycling Division's mission is to increase the sustainability of the City by educating and motivating the Cambridge community to value waste reduction and to integrate sustainable habits into daily activities. We seek to foster a culture that encourages people to consume less, reuse and donate materials, and recycle what cannot be eliminated or reused.

Description

The Recycling Division plans, implements and maintains cost-effective recycling, toxics reduction and waste prevention programs that are characterized by good communication, good customer service and high participation and recovery rates. We maintain and monitor the curbside recycling program, a Drop-Off Center, as well as recycling in city buildings, schools, public areas, and at festivals. In addition, we help businesses and institutions plan and implement effective recycling and waste reduction programs. The Recycling Division, guided by the Recycling Advisory Committee, works to implement City policies, improve current programs, and expand efforts to meet or exceed the waste reduction and recycling goals outlined in the City's Climate Protection Plan and the Massachusetts Solid Waste Master Plan. By reducing natural resource waste and supporting the purchase of products with recycled content, we can improve the health of our environment and economy for generations to come.
