The objective of this survey is to understand our community priorities with respect to trash and recycling. By diverting the amount we reuse, recycling and compost, Lynnfield can reduce its cost for waste disposal. Our ultimate goal is to preserve the environment for generations to come, and improve and encourage responsible waste management.

Here are some facts:

  • For 2019, the total cost of trash and recycling collection, trash disposal and recycling processing is more than $800,000.
  • Our current contract expires in two years and based on current trends, rates are expected to increase significantly.
  • The Town could save a minimum of $42 per ton in avoided trash disposal costs by reducing our waste and increasing our reuse, recycling and composting.
  • On a per household basis, Lynnfield residents throw out more trash than 26 other North of Boston communities.
  • Lynnfield’s recycling rate is 19%, falling below other like communities that recycle as much as 48% of their total waste.
  • Our trash is brought to one of three waste incinerators located in Essex County and recycling is brought to GreenWorks.
