THE RECYCLING DROP OFF CENTER LOCATED AT FREEDOM PARK WILL NOT BE REOPENING.
Due to the large amount of illegal dumping (the leaving of non-accepted items such as mattresses, furniture, electronics, etc.) and excess contamination (including plastic bags, hazardous waste, construction material, and general trash), effective April 1, 2019, the Drop Off Recycling Center located at Freedom Park in Lowell will be closed.
