The Organics Subcommittee is part of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) Solid Waste Advisory Committee. This meeting is open to the public. If you are unable to attend in person, register in advance to participate via webinar.
The agenda on December 7 includes a stakeholder discussion on best management practices for source reduction of food waste. RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts is developing best management practices for source reduction of food waste at institutional food service operations. RecyclingWorks is coordinating a stakeholder engagement process that will inform the development of this guidance. The stakeholder engagement process includes discussions to learn about source reduction strategies at institutional food service operations such as colleges and universities, hospitals, prisons, and corporate cafeterias. This topic is also on the agenda for the RecyclingWorks WasteWise Fall Forum on November 1 at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel.
