Holliston strikes deal to send recyclables to Blackstone

Posted by Martin Finucane March 16, 2007 03:05 PM


Selectmen last Monday approved a recycling program that will send cardboard and paper generated by Holliston schools to the town of Blackstone, which is buying such materials because it has made arrangements to resell them at a higher price.

Holliston currently pays a company to haul away the materials. "This is sort of a no-brainer," said selectmen chairman Carl Damigella. He said that if the program goes well, it might be expanded to include curbside recycling.

Holliston is waiting for Blackstone selectmen to approve the agreement.
