The Food Recovery Challenge is an EPA program to help organizations divert wasted food following the EPA Food Recovery Hierarchy.

WasteWise is a voluntary program – sponsored nationally by the EPA and in Massachusetts by the DEP – designed to help organizations reduce solid waste.

RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts organizes two WasteWise forums each year. For more information about Massachusetts WasteWise, or if you need assistance with setting up a composting or recycling program, call the RecyclingWorks hotline: (888) 254-5525 or email us at info@recyclingworksma.com.
