Chelmsford Recycles!  

Awards and Contest Winners

Congratulations to all our award and contest winners!


America Recycles Day
Close the Loop Pledge
Award Winner

The Chelmsford Recycling Committee, in recognition of America Recycles Day on November 15, offered Chelmsford residents the opportunity to take a pledge to "close the loop" by both recycling and buying recycled products. Those who submitted their pledge forms to the Town's Recycling Office in November were entered in a drawing for a basket filled with wonderful products donated by members and friends of the Recycling Committee. All of the donated gifts are made out of recycled material.

Chelmsford resident Janet Paton won the basket, and is shown with Recycling Committee member Bonnie Rankin, who spearheaded the project. Janet is an avid recycler who puts out two or three containers filled with recyclables on recycling weeks, and only one bag of trash per week. In addition, she recently got her church to start recycling. The Town and the Chelmsford Recycling Committee congratulate Janet and thank her for her waste reduction efforts. We encourage everyone to recycle, to reduce their solid waste output, and when shopping, to "close the loop" by purchasing products that contain recycled content and that are themselves recyclable. For more information on recycling in Chelmsford, visit or call 978-250-5203.
