Sign Up For a Free Talking Trash & Recycling Presentation
The cost and complexity of managing trash and recycling is a significant challenge for communities and businesses across Massachusetts. These challenges include:
- Confusion about what should go in the trash and what should go in the recycling bin
- High contamination rates (contamination occurs when people throw non-recyclable items in their recycling bins)
- A misconception that recycling is not worth the effort and these items end up in the trash (not true!)
- Staying up-to-date on the latest changes to recycling practices
Our Talking Trash & Recycling program is an interactive presentation that teaches residents, employees, and students about what really happens to their trash and recyclables here in Massachusetts. Learn about the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection's innovative new Recycle Smart MA program.
Attendees will also learn to reduce the amount of trash they generate, improve their recycling habits, make small changes to lead a more sustainable lifestyle, and help the state of Massachusetts achieve its solid waste reduction goals.
This fun, engaging, and interactive program is delivered in 45 minutes, with 15 additional minutes of questions and answers at the end.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection
