Can I recycle this?

Ever found yourself staring at a piece of plastic or styrofoam and wondering if it’s recyclable or not? If you’re in Franklin, you now have a handy resource to give you the answer!


The Department of Public Works has put together the Franklin Recyclopedia, which is “designed to help you properly dispose of anything and everything.” From the above link, it’s easy to find out how to get rid of whatever item you have: just click on the letter your item begins with, and scroll down till you find your answer. Over 350 items are included in the Recyclopedia, but if your item is the rare one that isn’t listed, just call the DPW at (508) 553-5500 and they’ll help you out.

If you’re not located in Franklin, chances are good your local Department of Public Works may have similar information available. Check them out and you might find some great resources you didn’t know you had!
