The purpose of GreenSalem is to provide you with a broad spectrum of information that will help you to recycle, reuse, repurpose, and overall reduce what goes into the waste stream. Further, it will also provide information so that you can reduce your use of energy, decrease water consumption, and find alternative means of transportation.
This website is to help you as a homeowner, apartment dweller, business owner, employee, educational facility, student, non-profit institution e.g. church, hospital, or as one of the tens of thousands of annual visitors to Salem. This site is a work in progress. Over the upcoming months, we will continue to add content and functionality to it.
The website is under the auspices of the Mayor Kimberley Driscoll and the City of Salem and is a result of collaboration among SalemRecycles, the Task Force on Energy Conservation, and the Green Salem Business Challenge.
