Our Environmental Impact Matters

With every passing day, we see the environmental crisis grow.  It’s up to us to do better for our children, for our planet, and for our future. Under Mayor Dolan, Melrose committed to become a NetZero community by 2050.

Recent changes in the recycling marketplace threaten our recycling program and will likely increase our tipping fees. Melrose is on the right path, but in order to meet our environmental and budgetary goals, we must step up our effort.  I will make it a priority of my administration to promote waste reduction and recycling and chart our path to carbon neutrality by 2050.
