Hey Smart Recyclers, In honor of America Recycles Day next month (November 15), MassDEP and the Recycle Smart MA Team are excited to bring you a series of informative and fun webinars we think you’ll enjoy, all month long! Join us for…

The Second Annual
Reduce, Reuse,
Recycle-Palooza!

From the story behind what happens to your plastic bags and wrap after they are collected at the grocery store, to local recycling volunteers who can’t help but inspire, this year’s presentations will not disappoint. In addition, we will offer two “Ask Me Anything About Recycling in MA” webinars to – you guessed it – answer questions about proper recycling. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to ask any of those burning recycling questions!

Lastly, you’ll want to keep an eye on our social media platforms. Every Monday in November, we will be posting a new recycling fact (#RSMARecyclingFacts) on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages, so be sure to follow Recycle Smart MA and share our content!
