    Zero Waste

    The City of Boston is committed to reducing waste by increasing recycling and reuse, and diverting organics. By keeping these valuables out of Boston's waste stream, we can collectively save money, create local jobs, and improve the environment. The City also welcomes innovative strategies to stop waste before it starts; that can include reducing consumption, comprehensive waste education, or new technologies to replace wasteful processes.

    Zero Waste Planning Process

    The City is exploring a zero waste plan for municipal solid waste, which could include more robust recycling policies, composting programs, and garbage disposal installation. Stay tuned for an opportunity to join the zero waste planning process--the best way stay informed is by joining our newsletter.

    Recycling in Boston 

    Public Works ensure that Boston’s streets, sidewalks, and bridges are safe, clean and attractive. They manage residential garbage collection and disposal, as well as curbside recycling. Knowing what can and cannot be recycled can be tricky.
