Tackling Mercury Waste: :  Update on Resources Available and BMPsTopic:  Mercury management

For this meeting we will turn our attention to mercury waste and options available to municipalities to support safe and cost-effective collection and recycling. 
 
Our agenda will include the following:
 
  • Speakers from Wheelabrator and Covanta/SeMASS will review Proposed 2018-2023 Mercury Separation Plans (MSPs) 
  • Round table discussion about how mercury is managed in non-MSP communities
  • Stories from the street: A local health official will speak about mercury's public health impact, with a story about a school spill and follow-up required.
  • MACs will provide an update about grants available to support collection and processing
  • Refresher Training: We will review technical lessons (how mercury behaves, gets into the environment and living organisms) coupled with a refresher about best practices for identification, handling, labeling, and spills.   
 

Location Middleboro Town Hall, 10 Nickerson Ave.
Light refreshments will be served.
Please Bring Your Own Mug to Reduce Waste. Thanks!

A Message from our Executive Director:

Do you know anyone who needs community service hours, or would like to help us spread the word about textile and general recycling?  The SSRC is seeking a volunteer/intern for 10-15 hours to help with digital outreach efforts through Facebook and the Beyond the Bin Recycling Directory.  See the posting here.
