Village of Massena residents continue to improve recycling efforts as indicated by the numbers.
In September of 2014 the recycle percentage for the entire Village was 15%; in September of 2015 that number increased to 24%.
We all understand that recycling is good for our environment and it also saves us all money down the road when we purchase items made from recycled material. Additionally, because of your renewed efforts, you helped reduce the Village of Massena’s refuse fees by $6,758.00 for the month of September, this year over last. That’s real savings that helps the Village control costs.
I understand that this renewed emphasis on recycling has not occurred without some difficulties and has caused some inconvenience. We certainly are not looking for perfection in the area of recycling, just a reasonable and good faith effort.

I truly appreciate your willingness to work with our Public Works staff to help this community be a leader in recycling reusable materials.
Great job Massena.
