Grant Information Sessions

for the Municipal Grant Application

of the Sustainable Materials Recovery Program

There are currently 14 member towns:
Abington, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hanover, Hanson,
Hingham, Kingston, Middleboro, Norwell, Plymouth,
Rockland, Scituate, Weymouth, and Whitman

The South Shore Recycling Cooperative was established in 1998 to help member towns improve their recycling programs, and reduce the quantity, toxicity and cost of disposal. The SSRC accomplishes this by assisting towns in:

  • managing their solid waste programs efficiently
  • providing economy of scale through regional procurement of services while allowing member towns to maintain full control over solid waste management
  • educating residents about how and why they should manage their waste materials thoughtfully
  • advocating for funding, sensible laws and regulations that accomplish the goal of minimizing waste and cost and maximizing recovery at the municipal level
