Recycling 101 for Multifamily Property Managers Webinar

June 3, 2020
2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Multifamily property managers across the state are finding that as more people are staying home, so is our waste! A large part of that waste is actually a resource: cardboard boxes and other materials that don’t belong in the trash. Increasing recycling is an important part of a healthy supply chain to provide feedstock for domestic box and container manufacturing companies. Recycling is also the law in Massachusetts. Learn from the MassDEP’s RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts Program and Recycle Smart Initiative for a webinar on Recycling 101 for Multifamily Property Managers.

Attendees will learn how to comply with Massachusetts recycling regulations (aka Waste Bans), handle challenging materials, contract with haulers, and access free communication tools to help tenants become smarter recyclers.
