Springfield Recycling Centers To Reopen This Week

John Biehler

The City of Springfield’s recycling sites will re-open this week after being closed for more than a month due to the coronavirus.

The Yardwaste Recycling Center in Brookline, the Lone Pine Recycling Center, the Franklin Recycling Center and the Household Chemical Collection Center will open on Wednesday.  Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. 

Buildings and bathrooms will be closed to the public.  Everyone who visits the facilities are asked to follow CDC physical distancing guidelines, wear face coverings and stay home if sick.

You’ll be asked to use recycling bins one person at a time; have only one person exit the vehicle; have recyclables ready to place in the bins; and avoid socializing or lingering.
