MassRecycle advocates for policies and regulations that improve recycling and waste reduction in the Commonwealth. We push for reasonable legislation that can fairly be implemented for all and result in an infrastructure and system that benefits all.

MassRecycle regularly comments on recycling bills at the State Legislature via formal written comment and live testimony. Our Board Members and Staff are active at MassDEP via the Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) and at MassDOT via the GreenDOT Advisory Committee.

Recently, after consulting with Representative Gobi, co-chair of the Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture, MassRecycle launched the MassRecycle Legislative Working Group to work on drafting comprehensive recycling legislation.
