Cleaning Up Our Recyclables: Update on Recycling Markets & MassDEP's IQ Kit 
Current market forces demand that we all do our part to support the collection of recyclables free of contamination from the populations we serve.   
At our December MRC meeting, we will hear from municipalities in our region who have worked to address this head on through implementation of MassDEP's Recycling IQ Kit.  In addition, MRF operators who supported these communities will join us to offer their insights about current recycling market conditions and how we can work together to meet the stricter quality standards required by these markets.  
Our agenda will include the following:
Recycling IQ Kit Results

Lessons learned from the Town of Abington and the City of New Bedford 

Applying for the Recycling IQ Kit in 2018

The Recycling IQ Kit provides municipalities with tools and resources to increase the quantity and improve the quality of the recycling stream. Program support includes technical assistance from MassDEP, outreach material production and distribution and/or funding for temporary staff for "tagging" curbside non-compliant recycling containers.
