The Latest News & Views from KMB

A recent ABC News report revealed that certain major retailers who accept plastic bags for recycling are simply disposing of the bags in landfills or incinerators or shipping them overseas. To ensure your plastic film is actually recycled, look for a retailer that participates in Trex's recycling program.

The five remaining in-state landfills in Massachusetts are nearing capacity and could all close within the next 10 years, depending on how quickly they fill up. The more waste we divert from our landfills, the longer they can remain open.

Despite decades of government policies to reduce waste, Massachusetts throws away about six million tons of solid waste each year, enough trash to fill up about 31 Fenway Parks.
