The next meeting of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection’s (MassDEP’s) Organics Subcommittee will be held from 10:00 – 12:00 pm on Wednesday, April 17, 2019. The meeting will be held at MassDEP’s Boston Office, located at One Winter Street in Boston. This meeting will continue the presentation and discussion from the March 19th meeting on food waste reduction and diversion from small business generators and residents. The meeting will then shift to the development of an updated Organics Action Plan focused on continuing to reduce and divert food waste from disposal in the coming decade.The current Organics Action Plan is available here. As discussed at the March 19th meeting, this will potentially include lowering the threshold for the commercial organics ban.
