Are you a passionate recycler and don’t mind delving into detail?
In 2014 Green Needham completed their online “Recyclopedia,” a comprehensive A-Z listing of how to get unwanted items to be reused or recycled. It has been updated once but is due for another update. We would like to have several people working on this project.
- Going through the Recyclopedia, checking links and confirming information presented.
- Adding any new resources discovered. (For example, the South Shore Recycling Cooperative has an A-Z Recycling list and has ideas about how to donate mattresses.)
- Talking with Matt DeMarrais, Needham’s Assistant Superintendent of Solid Waste, to get additional information on the RTS and other resources.
Most work can be done on the computer, with a few phone calls possibly needed. A couple “field trips” may be necessary — going to the RTS to confirm the location of specialty collections such as clothing, books, cell phones, etc. Also helpful would be checking location of recycling collection bins at a couple large stores such as Home Depot and Best Buy in Dedham.
