Watch Our Talking Trash & Recycling Presentation
The cost and complexity of managing trash and recycling pose significant challenges 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 all of 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 educates residents, employees, and students about what happens to their trash and recyclables here in Massachusetts.
Viewers will learn ways 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.
Feedback on our Presentation:
Dear Keep Massachusetts Beautiful,
I am writing from the Southwest Boston Community Development Corporation’s (SWBCDC) Hyde Park Green Team to thank you for your support and training that you provide for our summer youth employment program. Our youth have learned so much valuable information from you about Keep Massachusetts Beautiful and where their trash goes. They said your presentation inspired them to be more conscious about their waste and how they dispose of it. Overall, the youth said your presentation was very informative and helpful.

I enjoyed the presentation last night for the town of Charlton! As a Charlton resident and a Casella employee I thought it was extremely relevant---I will definitely recommend it to other communities.
