Welcome to the Attleboro Recycling Program. In 2013 we recycled over
4,550 tons of paper products and bottles and cans curbside in
residential units one through eight. Your efforts saved disposal
costs of over $340,000.00.
Once an aluminum can is recycled, it can
be part of a new can within six weeks. An aluminum can that is
thrown away will still be a can 500 years from now! For
every ton we recycle, we save 17 trees, 2 barrels of oil, 7,000
gallons of water and over 3,000 lbs of air pollutants. In Attleboro
we recycle over 4,500 tons per year. Please continue to recycle!
As of today,
rubbish pickup will be delayed by at least one day this week.
Further information will be given and provided by 3 pm, Tuesday,
January 27, 2015 on the City of Attleboro’s website (www.cityofattleboro.us),
Attleboro Comcast Channels 15 & 98 or by calling 508-223-2233 x3245.

recycling carts are picked up curbside?
