Bow Recycles!


The members of the Bow Recycling and Solid Waste Committee understand the frustration of community members with the current state of recycling. The Town's Recycling & Solid Waste Committee is currently reviewing options for recycling and will be giving recommendations to the Town Manager and Selectmen.  In the interim you can help by trying to reduce waste or reuse items, composting is free, easy and great for the environment!

Don't forget you can still compost! Textiles and books can be placed in the bin at the Bow Methodist Church.

Sincerely, Town of Bow Recycling and Solid Waste Committee


The Committee serves as a sounding board for the community for matters dealing with recycling and solid waste.
