MassDEP Recycle Smart Resources

Do your part to learn how to recycle smart! MassDEP launched the Recycle Smart MA program to provide clear guidance to Massachusetts residents and businesses on what materials should and should not be placed in recycling containers.  The resulting Smart Recycling Guide is a simple, image-heavy guide to what can be recycled no matter where you live in the Bay State.  For very inquisitive recyclers, the Recyclopedia search tool answers the “Recycle or Trash?” question for over 700 items.  The Smart Recycling Guide is also available (and downloadable) in eight different languages.
