Team Haverhill was instrumental in bringing single stream recycling to Haverhill and continues to work to educate residents about the benefits of recycling.
Throughout 2008 and 2009, the Team Haverhill Recycling Committee focused on bringing single stream (also known as commingled or single-sort) recycling to Haverhill. After presenting a study that showed that the city could save money by expanding recycling beyond curbside pickup of paper only, Team Haverhill collaborated with city officials to implement the program.
Our involvement has included:
- Funding to design, print, and distribute the green and white recycling brochures sent to all city residents.
- Supplying green Haverhill Recycles stickers for recycling barrels .
- Educating school students with fun recycling demonstrations.
- Holding public events at events like Tattersall Farm Day, River Ruckus, and Haverhill Goes Green.

We also encourage you to visit the City of Haverhill’s website, where you’ll find information about the city’s recycling program, including the curbside collection schedule, as well as a downloadable brochure. The site also includes information about how, when and where residents can recycle special items such as electronics and household hazardous materials (paint, fluorescent lamps, mercury, etc.)
The recycling work was outstanding because it is a money-saver and supports a greener community. People had been talking about it for so long but Team Haverhill made it happen.Haverhill resident
