Recycling Options:Convert an unneeded trash barrel
or barrel into a recycling container. The container must be no larger than 32-gallons and have a lid; the converted trash barrel needs to be labeled with a recycling sticker, which we can send you (request at link below).
Clear plastic bags
for residents in the North End, South End, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, Fenway, Charlestown, South Boston and East Boston; in addition, parts of Roxbury (right side of Blue Hill outbound from Dudley to Seaver) and the parts of Jamaica Plain with multiple collections.
Residents from the above neighborhoods can use clear, heavy duty, 32-gallon plastic bags for their recyclables. Separating redeemable cans and bottles into a separate container is recommended. Look for the City's official clear recycling bags in your neighborhood retail stores.
