The 2023 MassRecycle Conference and Trade Show was a smashing success!
MassRecycle pushes back on narrative of recycling as ‘a hoax,’ touts education efforts at the 2023 MassRecycle Conference. In the wake of critical reports from advocacy groups and negative media coverage, the state’s public and private and sector recyclers are pushing back.
Recycling is Real!
MassRecycle is deeply concerned that NPR’s “Recycling plastic is practically impossible — and the problem is getting worse” has maligned recycling and misinformed readers. Far from addressing the problem of plastic waste, this kind of negative press motivates people to “throw it all in the trash”. Recycling is not a sham. Please do not throw everything in the trash.
