The new deal in recycling

Shrewsbury – Waste Management has collaborated with the town of Shrewsbury to institute a new co-collection enhanced trash and recycling program.

Recycling will now be picked up every week. On “yellow” weeks it will be paper and cardboard and on alternate “gray” weeks, the materials will be bottles and cans. Trash and recycling will be collected at the same time and deposited into a co-collector truck, which is able to keep trash and recyclables separated.
