Recycling in Duxbury

Duxbury employs dual stream recycling at the Duxbury Recycling Transfer FacilityRecycling is mandatory, and all disposed and recycled materials must be put in the correct areas.  For instance, food soiled items, plastic bags, and liquids may not be placed in the recycling area.  Clean paper, cardboard, bottles and rigid containers may not go in the trash.  Repeat violations may result in loss of Transfer Station privileges.

As of 11/20/17, recyclables must be separated as it has become too costly to sell mixed recyclables

Make sure you are recycling the right way.

Below is a Duxbury recycling guide for all items that can be recycled and properly disposed
