Recycle Smart MA is an education initiative developed and funded by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP). Their mission is to educate Massachusetts residents about what can and cannot go in the curbside recycling bin.

Recycle Smart MA has a number of extremely informative resources:

Recylopedia
A search tool, where residents can search for hundreds of items (from paper bags to pizza boxes) to find out how to properly manage them.

Beyond the Bin
A search tool to find out how and where to donate or recycle items that can’t go in your home recycling bin and are too good to trash. 

Newsletter
Each issue does a deep dive into various reuse, repair, and recycling topics that are sure to get you thinking.
