Boston to (finally) begin curbside recycling

Recycling logoBoston – known for baseball, the Freedom Trail and Quincy Marketplace – is finally stepping up into the green movement. As of July 1st, they’ll begin residential curbside recycling, something that the majority of both large metropolitan areas and smaller towns across the country have been doing for years.

Boston will deliver more than 55,000 64-gallon carts to single-family homes and 6-unit-or-less apartments over the next year. The city expects that using the single-stream recycling system will save the city $1 million per year in waste disposal costs. It costs the city $40 less per ton to recycle than to send it to a landfill or incinerator, according to city officials.

With such an anticipated savings, you’d think city officials in Bean town would have jumped on the green bandwagon a long time ago. But better late than never.
