Brockton and Hanover Officially Launch Film Plastics Recycling Pilot Project June 2, 2014. Film plastics make up a large portion of the household waste that we send to our landfills. Recycling them closes the loop, recycling consumer packaging that can then be remanufactured into new materials. To reduce your use of these plastics, avoid using what cannot be recycled in Hanover. Bring your own container for bulk or take-out foods and encourage food producers, manufacturers and retailers to switch to reusable, recyclable or compostable alternatives.
Tips - all bags must be:
Drop-Off Location - Fill an empty grocery or retail bag with plastics and tie tightly. Place filled bags in the yellow bin at the landfill site.
|Accepted Items||Only bags identified by #2 HDPE (high density polyethylene) or #4 LDPE (low density polyethylene) are accepted.|

Instead of throwing away unwanted household items...keep them out of the landfill and GIVE THEM AWAY!
FREE TOWN-WIDE “GOODS EXCHANGE” is a great opportunity for everyone to give away those reusable household items, such as furniture, appliances or children’s toys which you no longer use. Just put them at the curb clearly marked that they are FREE. Tour the neighbourhood to see what goods you may find for your family. Residents are reminded not to leave any items near the curb that they don't wish to be mistakenly picked up. Any items left at the curb after Goods Exchange Week must be removed by owner. This is a free exchange, not a yard sale so registration is not required.
Thanks for your co-operation!
