Other Recyclable Items

In addition to the items you can recycle through curbside recycling, here are some other things you can recycle:

Rechargeable Batteries

These may be brought to the Town of Ashland Public Works Department, located at 201 Duncan Street. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when recycling batteries:
  • Alkaline batteries are NOT recyclable.
  • Rechargeable batteries include Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Ion (Li-ion) and Small-Sealed Lead (Pb), (2 1/4-lbs. or less). Rechargeable batteries can be found in cordless handheld devices, tools, electronics, and appliances.
  • When recycling rechargeable batteries, place each battery individually in a plastic bag in order to prevent short circuits and the possibility of fire.
