Your business can do it!
RecyclingWorks Massachusetts can help.
Setting up a recycling program at your business can save you money by reducing both your dumpster size and the frequency of pick-ups. Many municipalities require this, in keeping with Mass. Waste Ban Regulations.
Collection options depend on the size, location and nature of a business' waste. Businesses can contract individually or cooperatively for service. See RecyclingWorks' guidance document here
The best first step is to contact your current waste hauler.
If their recycling service does not meet your needs, contact a separate service company to help you get started. Contact and service information for some local recycling vendors are listed here (download).
Computer Take-Back Programs - Don't throw out those old PCs! They contain materials that are both valuable and hazardous. Many PC manufacturers will take back your old PC when you are buying a new one. Not buying a replacement? There are still ways to recycle it.
