Robert Salvaggio Drop-Off Center of Braintree

Bob Salvaggio was a dedicated and committed resident of Braintree. He was a founding member of the Recycling Committee and Chairman for many years. Bob championed many recycling initiatives and helped Braintree become a leader in community recycling. To commemorate his civic pride and tireless work ethic, the Ivory Street Drop Off Center was renamed the Robert Salvaggio Drop-Off Center of Braintree in the Summer of 2007.
