Cambridge Launches Small Business Recycling Pilot

Cambridge, MA, November 7, 2018 – In an effort to increase recycling and help decrease costs for small businesses, the City of Cambridge has launched the Small Business Recycling Pilot. The pilot will provide small businesses with free curbside recycling collection.

Businesses with less than 50 full-time employees were invited to apply for the program to receive collection twice a week for the next year. The Department of Public Work plans to work closely with participating businesses to help them divert as much waste from the trash as possible while keeping non-recyclable materials out of the recycling stream.

“Our small businesses are very important to the Cambridge community,” said City Manager Louis A. DePasquale.  “Collecting recycling at no cost from these businesses is a way to help them, but also aligns with the City’s goals to reduce trash and greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a win for everyone.”
