Spoiler Alert, a company which offers software to facilitate the donation of surplus food, created a list of resources for food waste in all six New England states. The section for each state has information on relevant state laws and waste bans, state agencies, and non-profit organizations that work with food waste diversion and donation.

The Massachusetts section lists RecyclingWorks as a primary resource for food waste. Specifically, the article points to the guide created by RecyclingWorks for donating surplus food. This food donation page contains resources on tax incentives, liability protection, and how to establish a successful program.

The Commercial Organics Waste Ban, which mandates that businesses and institutions divert food waste for composting or donation if they generate a ton or more per week, is also listed in the Massachusetts section. RecyclingWorks offers technical assistance to entities that need to comply with the waste ban.

RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts assists businesses and institutions with recycling and food waste reduction through food donation and composting. To speak to a recycling expert, call our hotline: (888) 254-5525 or email us at
