Bi-Annual Recycling Day

The Dedham Sustainability Advisory Committee will be kicking off Earth Day one day early on Saturday, April 21, with its Bi-Annual Recycling Day from 8 a.m. to noon at the Dedham Middle School, 70 Whiting Avenue.

Dedham residents can drop off materials for free, except for electronics which will be accepted with a nominal fee. All proceeds go to support the Neponset Sunrise Rotary Club.

polystyreneBring your polystyrene plastic (stamped #6), including solid blocks of packing foam, coolers, sheets of white foam, clean and dry polystyrene coffee cups, grocery meat trays (free of all other packaging), and takeout clam shell food packaging. No packing peanuts will be accepted.

All polystyrene material must white; no color foam will be accepted. The material must be clean, dry and free of tape, stickers, and labels. Please put all foam in a plastic bags to prevent the material from scattering. Polystyrene material cannot be loose in the dumpster.
