PELLET BAG RECYCLING PROGRAM

The Franklin County Solid Waste District has coordinated a new program for residents to recycle empty wood pellet bags. Using grant funds from MassDEP and a state Community Innovation Challenge Grant, the District has purchased and distributed small sheds to collect and recycle wood pellet bags. This is a pilot program and can only accept pellet bags – no other plastic bag or plastic film product. Bags must be dry and empty. There is a new shed available for Buckland residents at the Transfer Station.
