Massachusetts Commercial Food Ban
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has established a solid waste disposal ban that applies to businesses and institutions disposing of one ton or more of food waste per week, effective October 1, 2014. Businesses that produce at least one ton of food waste a week must now recycle or reuse that material instead of sending it to landfills or incinerators. We Can Help!
The materials must be re-purposed or donated to food banks, sent for composting or for animal-feed or utilized in anaerobic digestion facilities. For options on complying with the Commercial Organics Waste Ban visit the Recycling Works Massachusetts
