Remember our Veterans

The Federal holiday, Veterans Day is November 11. 
This is a special day to take a moment and reflect on those who have served our country.   Please note that since the holiday falls on a Saturday, curbside collection schedules will not be impacted.
However, the Recycling Center on Ivory Street and the Compost Site on Plain Street will be closed. 

Think of the problem in terms of your recycling cart’s 10  most unwanted items: plastic bags, clothes, pots and pans, dishes, wood, trash, yard waste, Styrofoam, yardwaste, food waste & hazardous waste. ”Let’s not hurt recycling”.  In Braintree ….recycling right matters!
