All together now.
In 2010 recycling got a lot simpler for Haverhill’s residents. You no longer have to separate paper & cardboard from glass, plastics and metal. Instead, you may mix all recyclable materials together in one or more containers for collection at your curb.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
When you recycle more, you’ll have less trash and won’t need as many trash cans. Convert one of your trash cans into a recycling container by labeling it with the Haverhill Recycles sticker. Stickers are currently being mailed to all residents. They are also available at Haverhill City Hall and the Haverhill Recycling Center at 500 Primrose Street. You may also continue to use your small green bin.
No sticker? No problem. Just clearly mark the outside of your container so it can easily be identified as a recycling container.
Too much material for one container? No problem. There is no limit to the number of containers you can use. Just be sure to label or mark each so that it can be easily recognized as a recycling container.
Fill your recycling container with acceptable materials, including the paper & cardboard, glass, plastic and metal items. Containers must be empty and rinsed clean. For a complete listing of acceptable materials, check out Can this be recycled? or print the 2013 Single Stream Brochure.
Recycling is collected at the curbside every other week on your regular trash day. Blue and red weeks are indicated on the Haverhill Citywide Curbside Singe-Stream Recyling page.
