Chatham Recycles

Logo for Chatham RecylcesMission Statement:

Chatham Recycles is a volunteer-driven educational program designed to encourage residents, visitors and businesses to reduce their trash output and increase their recycling efforts. By recycling, Chathamites can limit the amount of trash going into incinerators and landfills, help conserve natural resources and contribute to Chatham's reputation as a forward-thinking and environmentally conscious community.

More Information:

Whether you are a business, a year-round resident or are simply visiting our community on Cape Cod, we ask that you do the right thing and start recycling today! The Recycling Center can be found at the Transfer Station at 97 Sam Ryder Road. For a map and directions, please click here.

Our chief goal at ChathamRecycles is to encourage residents, businesses and visitors to this Cape Cod community to "reduce, re-use and recycle". To that end, if we can be of any service, please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you have a specific question, you might find it already answered on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
