Great work, #SalemMA! We've reduced recycling contamination from 28% three years ago, down to 9% last year, & now down further to just about 8% in 2021. Less contamination means more recycling tonnage, which is better for the planet & less costly to dispose of, saving the City $.
Make a morning of it in downtown #SalemMA on Saturday: get your vaccine or booster from the @MassGenBrigham mobile clinic, hit the @SalemYMCA, swing by the @SalemRecycles textile recycling drive (Riley Plaza 8AM-1PM)... https://twitter.com/CityofSalemMA/status/1460645810400600068
