Our state’s landfills and incinerators pollute the air and water of neighboring communities. But millions of tons of that waste could have been recycled or composted.
The solution? We need the Commonwealth to get serious about reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators by enforcing the existing waste bans, funding municipal composting programs, and reinstating the 1980s moratorium on building new incinerators. The solution to our waste problem needs to be making less waste, not building more polluting facilities.
Sign Our Petition! Tell Governor Maura Healey to direct the MassDEP to take steps to reduce the amount of trash we bury and burn.
