Amherst Recycles “CLEAN”
The Town of Amherst, in partnership with Modern Disposal is instituting new recycling guidelines. These are in response to the recycling crisis affecting the entire nation after China and other Asian countries began limiting the amount of recyclable materials being imported into their countries. The Town developed the acronym “CLEAN” to help educate residents on the forthcoming changes. The Town of Amherst and its residents recycle more than 20,000 tons of material per year which includes curbside recycling, yard compost, and metal goods.
