We often hear from our customers who ask us where they can recycle items other than the ones we can handle with our South Shore recycling service. Awkward and potentially dangerous items such as electronics, old televisions, paint and even battery acid can be recycled, but need to be cared for and processed very carefully.
For those items that we can’t handle, we would point you to the South Shore Recycling Cooperative. The Co-op has a strong web site with schedules for specific drop offs for difficult to dispose of items, such as televisions, old computer monitors, paint and even large quantities of textiles and clothing.
Check out their site today, as they constantly have new events scheduled to dispose of your hard-to-dispose of items.
Member towns of the Co-Op include: Abington, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hanover, Hanson, Hingham, Kingston, Middleborough, Norwell, Plymouth, Rockland, Scituate, Weymouth and Whitman.
So if we cant take it during our South Shore recycling runs, you still know where to dispose of it safely.
