10:00 am - 12:00 pm

MassDEP is holding a virtual public hearing on Thursday, November 12 at 10:00 am to discuss the proposed amendments to 310 CMR 19.000 that would add mattresses and textiles to the list of materials banned from disposal in Massachusetts and lower the threshold for the existing ban on disposal of commercial organic (food) materials so that it applies to facilities that generate one-half a ton per week or more of these materials for disposal. The agency is also proposing changes to its waste disposal ban guidance document for solid waste management facilities.
