Waste Wise

A recycling and waste reduction resource.

What is Waste Wise and Recycling IQ?

The Town of Tyngsborough was awarded the RecyclingIQ grant from Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. This grant funds education efforts that will be coordinated by the Sustainability Committee and the Board of Health to help residents understand what can and cannot be recycled in our curbside program. The goal is to lower our recycling contamination rate.
