Recycling Goes Beachy Keen

What DO Lighthouse Beach and the Friday Night Band Concerts have in common?

Throngs of people tossing their spent soda cans and plastic bottles into the trash.

What WILL Lighthouse Beach and the Friday Night Band Concerts have in common?

Throngs of people tossing their spent soda cans and plastic bottles into recycling bins!

These are two of Chatham's most popular summertime venues, and the town has recognized that it only makes sense to start offering recycling at the two locations.

At Lighthouse Beach, two attractive recycling bins will be stationed at the top of the stairs -- one for plastic bottles, the other for aluminum cans. At the Friday Night Band Concerts, four white, corrugated bins (two for plastic bottles, two for aluminum cans) will be stationed at each end of Kate Gould Park.

The recyclables will then be transferred to Chatham's Town Recycling Center by our wonderful, hard-working town employees.

By offering recycling at these two high-profile locations, Chatham demonstrates to both residents and vacationers that the town is committed to being Cape Cod's most 'recycle-friendly' community and Chatham Recycles commends town officials, as well as town employees, for stepping up to the plate and doing the right thing.

Look for these recycling bins at the beach and the park soon!
