SalemRecycles committee member demonstrating recycling Do's and Don'ts at Salem's Green Fair.
In early 2008, Mayor Driscoll appointed a recycling committee "Salem Recycles"
as part of a ‘green’ initiative to develop ways to increase recycling throughout the city and promote other green efforts. Through the efforts of Mayor Driscoll and the Committee, Salem has become a leader on the North Shore regarding its
recycling efforts, improving recycling rates over 100%.
In order to continue to increase the overall rate of recycling in Salem through education and increased ease and availability, we have developed recycling tips and information for various community stakeholders.
