Recycling in Medford

Medford has a single-stream recycling program. Each household receives a 96-gallon recycling bin which is collected every other week on trash collection days. All recycling is collected together in the one bin, which means no sorting for residents. Waste Management takes the combined recycling to its comprehensive sorting facility to be separated and sent to various processors and buyers.
