Sustainability Projects & Resources 

Sustainability Planner & Grant Coordinator,  Montanna Cassel, has created opportunities for residents to help the Town become more resilient against climate change:

    1. Transform your single-use plastic bags into a bench with the NEX TREX Bags to Benches program. Bag collection sites are located at the Cohasset Middle/High School (front entrances and cafeteria), Town Hall, Library, Willcutt Commons, & Deer Hill Elementary School. Help clean up the local environment and create something useful for the community – a flyer is below.Bags to Benches Poster Update
    2. Are you interested in composting but do not know where or how to start? Cohasset is helping residents connect with Black Earth Composting and BootStrap Composting to do curb-side compost in town. Options for Composting
    3. WaterSmart is a nonprofit partnership between the North & South River Watershed Association and 12 towns on the South Shore: Cohasset, Duxbury, Hanover, Hingham, Hull, Kingston, Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke, Rockland, Scituate and Weymouth. This is an opportunity for residents to learn about different ways to adapt to climate change right in your own backyard. If you want to make your home more sustainable, this is the program to help you start making that difference.

    4. CSCR & Worcester Polytechnic Institute student, Amelia McDonough, has been working with Montanna Cassel to update Cohasset's stormwater drain data. Amelia has created an ArcGIS map for residents to be aware of where the stormwater drains are located between Parker Ave, Boarder Street, Elm Street, and the Paul Pratt Library.  She was assisted by Elsie Hession, Matt Lucitt, Ada Cogill, & Bella Bottini to conduct the stenciling. This project has progressed the Engineering and Project Management goal of the 2019 Cohasset Master Plan.
