We spend $400K to throw away 4,000 tons of trash each day, but soon there won't be an "away"!

We waste $160 million of Massachusetts taxpayer money annually to manage trash. By 2020, landfill capacity will dwindle, forcing us to export 2 million tons of trash each year.

More than half of our trash could be turned into valuable items if everyone recycled properly.

We could recover $150 million of recyclables annually in MA. Recycling also produces 4 times less greenhouse gases than landfilling while creating 10 times the jobs.

MASSRECYCLE gives YOU the opportunity to empower MA citizens to recycle properly.

In addition to our advocacy and education programs, we have the unprecedented opportunity to reach 1.3 million residents daily to drive social change around recycling.

As a part of MASSRECYCLE, you can

  • Drive social change by supporting the MBTA Public Space Recycling Project, which will reach 1.3 million riders daily
  • Pass important recycling legislation at the State House by adding your voice to our advocacy efforts
  • Share your concerns with recycling experts, including all 351 municipal coordinators, at the annual R3 Conference
