Multifamily property managers across the state are finding that as more people are staying home, so is their waste! A large part of that waste is actually resources, such as cardboard boxes and other materials that don’t belong in the trash. Increasing recycling is an important part of a healthy supply chain, as it provides feedstock for domestic box and container manufacturing companies. Recycling is also the law in Massachusetts.
MassDEP’s RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts Program and Recycle Smart Initiative recently held a webinar on Recycling 101 for Multifamily Property Managers. Attendees learned how to comply with Massachusetts recycling regulations (aka Waste Bans), handle challenging materials, contract with haulers, and access free communication tools to help tenants become smarter recyclers.
