Need to Enforce: Waste Bans in Massachusetts

Download the document.

The goal of this report is to shine a spotlight on the fact that every year in Massachusetts more than 2 million tons of waste (approximately 40% of total waste), which ends up in landfills, incinerators, or as litter, is composed of materials that were banned from disposal long ago by Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) regulations. We hope that with more attention on this problem, MassDEP, with help from Massachusetts cities and towns, can launch an effective
effort to eliminate this substantial portion of the waste stream.
