Located on the first floor of Town Hall, the Environmental Department:

  • Works to make Dedham a more sustainable community.
  • Promotes transportation options, energy efficiency, waste reduction, recycling, and composting.

  • Engages residents and businesses in environmental issues affecting the community.


The Town of Dedham introduced the Single Stream Recycling program in 2009. With single stream recycling residents are able to combine paper, plastics and cardboard into one recycling toter.
