Project Description

In partnership with the City of Newburyport’s Recycling Department, The Arc of Greater Haverhill-Newburyport will expand the City’s capacity to recycle electronic equipment by offering additional services to area residents. Adults with I/DD will be provided with training and support by The Arc of GHN to work for the City of Newburyport in their Recycling Center. By combining both of our expertise we will work towards Newburyport increasing their eRecycling capacity and providing sustainable paid employment for people with I/DD.

Project Highlights

  1. This is a joint project between the City of Newburyport, MA recycling department and The Arc of GHN. The City will be the employer of 6 individuals with I/DD and The Arc of GHN will provide the job support for these individuals.
  2. The project provides training and assistance for adults with I/DD to learn the skills necessary to work as productive and knowledgeable employees in recycling electronic waste.
  3. The project will expand the City of Newburyport’s recycling capacity and be part of their ability to move forward in meeting their goals as a “zero waste” pilot program.
