RECYCLE SMART

Recyclopedia is a search tool designed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, where residents can search for hundreds of items (from paper bags to pizza boxes) to find out how to properly manage them.  There is also a video showing the recycling sorting process inside a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and answers to frequently asked questions about why and how to recycle smart.

Recent global restrictions imposed on imports of recyclable materials have dramatically affected recycling across the Country. In Massachusetts’ recycling market, tighter end-market specifications for recovered materials have led to higher processing costs and lower revenues.
