Business Insider is reporting that there’s been a boom in recycling companies in Northampton.
There are now three in town, with three more coming soon.
One of the major factors that’s pushing the businesses to expand their operation is the increased demand from the city’s growing population.
A recent survey from the Northampton Community Development Agency found that Northampton had the highest rate of new households in the state, and was the third-most densely populated city in the US.
The city is also home to a large number of businesses that recycle and are known for their recycling practices.
A number of companies, including Northampton City Council, Northampton Environmental Protection Agency and Northampton Waste Recycle have signed on to help with waste collection.
