Overview

Welcome! We are the Boxborough Sustainability Committee: an all-volunteer committee appointed by the Board of Selectmen to help the Town save money by controlling energy costs and reducing the Town’s impact on the environment.

Climate Change Survey

Our recent Climate Change Survey asked what our community currently knows, what it thinks it needs to know, and what should be done about climate change and by whom. The survey also assessed the community’s willingness to commit to action to mitigate climate change.  The key takeaways were the majority of Boxborough residents believe climate change is real, they want to learn more, and take action. They believe Government, Business, and Community partnerships should lead the way to mitigate the harmful effects that make us vulnerable. 

Bay State Textile Recycling

The Boxborough Sustainability Committee has brought Bay State Textile Recycling to two convenient locations in town: Sargent Library and Transfer Station. For every ton of recycled textiles, the town earns $100. These centrally located depositories take our unwanted textiles to prevent them from going into the trash.  Visit Acceptable Items for Recycling on the Bay State Textile website (PDF).
