About Us

Our mission is to provide education and opportunities for the environmentally sound reuse, recycling and proper disposal of household products, including hazardous materials, for a healthy watershed community.  We do so through the Wachusett Watershed Regional Recycle Center.

We are a non-profit corporation offering Wachusett residents a place to reuse, recycle or dispose of household items.

With the exception of our Executive Director, Norma Chanis and Operations Manager, Mark Koslowske we are an all-volunteer staffed and run site.  Interested in volunteering? Let us know!

Wachusett Earthday has an on-going partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and seven Wachusett towns: Boylston, Holden, Paxton, Princeton, Rutland, Sterling and West Boylston.   We also work closely with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to see that we are in compliance with state rules.  We assist our towns in maximizing their opportunity for obtaining DEP Recycling Dividends.  We have also been grateful recipients of several DEP Recycling, Reuse and Business Development grants.
