Summer Reading:
Recycle Smart Style

Oh, how the summer is flying by!

The Recycle Smart Team is taking a “newsletter break” this summer to focus on other projects.  In the meantime, we wanted to share some of our favorite reads from the last two months. We’ll be back with our regular deep dive newsletter before you know it.  “See you” in September!

📚 What We're Reading

📚 Bonus Read for Recycling Nerds (like us!):

Hey Smart Recyclers – recycling nerd or not, this book will appeal to a wide audience who wants to learn about our recycling system and how it works. Can I Recycle This?: A Guide to Better Recycling and How to Reduce Single-Use Plastics by Jennie Romer provides straightforward answers to complex recycling questions in a fun, aesthetically pleasing format.  If you or someone you know wants a soup-to-nuts understanding of what happens to our recyclables and how they are sorted, marketed, and made into new products, look no further! Find a copy at your local library or your favorite bookseller.

Partner Spotlight: We'd Love to Hear From You!

Do you know of a municipality, a business or a school that is working hard to spread the Recycle Smart message?  We’d like to know about them!  Send us an email at RecycleSmartMA@mass.gov with their name and contact info.  If their outreach work is “bin-spirational”, you might just see them in a future Partner Spotlight.  Check our Partner Spotlight Gallery to see how others earned their spot.
Keep cool,

The Recycle Smart MA Team at MassDEP
