The Tewksbury Recycling Committee (TRC) is a town committee reporting to the Tewksbury Town Manager. It is comprised of volunteers who would like to both reduce costs of refuse collection/disposal as well as
attempt to “do what’s right” for our part of the world.
Some of the goals that the TRC attempts to achieve include:
Reduce the total amount of disposable solid waste, thereby saving money for the residents of Tewksbury;
Promote public awareness of recycling and related issues;
Advance recycling for residents of multifamily housing;
Protect our environment by keeping toxins and other materials out of disposal facilities; and
Assist with household hazardous waste collection and proper disposition programs;
Meetings are typically held once a month in the library, but this schedule can change due to various circumstances. Non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend with questions. Please check the town website for meeting announcements and don’t hesitate to contact a member to confirm a meeting time/location.
Anyone curious about the TRC and/or wondering if they can help without taking up too much of their free time can certainly contact any member and talk about things. There are many opportunities for both long-term volunteers and single-event volunteers. All help is welcome and encouraged!!
