Recycle Smart MA

In 2018, MassDEP launched a new statewide recycling education initiative – Recycle Smart and the Recyclopedia.  Did you know what goes in the recycling bin? Are you sure?

The brilliant and interactive Recyclopedia is aimed at reducing contamination in recycling.  Contamination, simply put, means putting trash and other materials that don’t belong in the recycling bin.  Some of what looks like it is recyclable might actually be trash.  Putting these items in with recycling actually makes it harder for recyclable materials to be processed.

Visit Recyclopedia and put your bin to the test.
