The North Andover Sustainability Committee is looking for new members and/or volunteers to help us with our current initiatives. Our mission is to serve as a resource and advocate for environmental sustainability in our town, focusing on resource conservation, waste reduction, and energy efficiency.

This year our main goals include:

  • Reduce food waste in our schools and incorporate composting of food scraps to promote sustainability for our children’s future.
  • Organize and promote our annual Town-Wide Clean-Up Day, which takes place on April 29th from 12-4pm. Stop by the DPW (384 Osgood St.) and we’ll outfit you with gloves, grabbers, and trash bags to help you clean up a section of our town in celebration of Earth Day!
  • Promote rain barrel usage throughout the community in an effort to conserve water. Order and pre-pay for your barrel today at www.greatamericanrainbarrel.com (Go to Community Programs and select North Andover). Barrels are as low as $64.00 and will be available for pick-up on April 29 th at the DPW. If you want to see a barrel in person, they will be on display in late March/early April at the Stevens Memorial Library, the YMCA, and Town Hall—go check one out!
  • Improve residential and commercial recycling participation in North Andover. Recycling is at the core of our mission, and we would love to hear your ideas on how we can promote greater participation throughout the community. If you have any interest in helping out with any of these initiatives, please contact us at nasustain@northandoverma.gov or join us at our next monthly meeting. It’s a great way to become involved with the community and help make a positive impact on North Andover’s environmental footprint.

Also, please look for us at upcoming North Andover festivals and the Farmers Market this summer. We look forward to meeting you!
