Advocating for Enforcement of Litter Laws

Thanks for recycling, New Bedford! Recycle all clean paper, cardboard, bottles, cans, jugs and jars. Empty and rinse containers. Do not bag recyclables. No plastic bags or food in recycling.

Return clean & dry plastic bags, and the over-wrap from multi-packs of water bottles, to the grocery stores. Look for plastic bag collection bins near the entrance or exit of the store.

Skip the Straw! And remember, New Bedford Recycling does NOT RECYCLE straws in blue bins so -skip the straw altogether!

For more recycling information, call (508) 979-1493.
