The 2021 Fall WasteWise Forum webinar will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, November 10th from 10:00am to 12:00pm. This event is particularly relevant to all Massachusetts businesses and institutions that are subject to the existing Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) commercial organics disposal ban, as well as those that would become subject to the proposed waste ban amendments.

In addition to updates from the MassDEP, the US EPA, and RecyclingWorks, attendees will hear from Northeastern University about their work to reduce, donate, and divert wasted food, and their recent successes working with Green Mattress Recycling and other partners to collect 3,000 mattresses from across campus for recycling. Nashoba Brook Bakery in West Concord will describe how they use strategies across the EPA Food Recovery Hierarchy, including a partnership with Too Good to Go, one app-based solution provider that helps food business with surplus items connect with customers.
