Greenfield awarded $2.05-million for recycling program

The City of Greenfield has received a $2.05 million grant from the Environmental Protection Agency for recycling infrastructure improvements.

The money will be used for upgrading the recycling processing from manual sorting to a fully automated recycling collection method, improving efficiency and safety for employees. This includes the purchase of new recycling management vehicles to replace the older vehicles.

Additionally, the City will be issuing new collection carts city-wide. The larger carts will be able to hold up to five times more recyclable materials with the inclusion of lids for the new carts reducing the potential for litter. The new carts will be integrated at no expense to residents.
