This story from NPR highlights the acceptance of the Massachusetts Food Waste Ban by food waste generators in the state. MassDEP Commissioner David Cash attributes this positive response to early outreach and involvement with those expected to be affected by the ban. The article notes that the National Waste and Recycling Association expected to testify against the legislation, but changed their mind once they saw how well the state’s plan would work for their constituents.
