Sustainable Materials Recovery Program Grant
In a letter signed by Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn E. Polito, Mayor William Martin was informed that Greenfield will be awarded $10, 050 as a result of the Greenfield Department of Public Works’ efforts via the Sustainable Materials Recovery Program (SMRP). Through SMRP’s Recycling Dividends and Small-Scale Initiative Programs, municipalities are given the opportunity to earn points by implementing specific programs and policies that maximize reuse, recycling, and waste reduction; with monies awarded based on the number of criteria points a town earns. The city’s 11 combined points earned $10,050 to be put toward future recycling initiatives.

Said Mayor Martin, “Janine Greaves, our recycling coordinator, has done a great job putting Greenfield at the forefront of current recycling practices. These funds will further energize our status as a ‘Green Community’ with new recycling bins, more benches made of recycled materials, and community education and outreach campaigns in our schools, municipal buildings, and other public spaces. The best part is, each year holds the prospect of securing these funds as we all work together in our commitment to a more sustainable Greenfield.”
