Although Spectacle Island’s past is full of smelly, funky operations, it’s always been involved with recycling and disposal in one way or another.

It’s known as Boston’s “Recycled island.” No wonder, then, that the newly renovated island facilities are green: the visitor’s center boasts solar panels to power the center and the ranger’s electric vehicles. It also recycles its water and uses composting toilets.
