Massachusetts cities and towns applying for Sustainable Materials Recovery Program (SMRP) In-Kind Technical Assistance Grants can receive up to 80 hours of recycling/solid waste or Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) planning assistance from a MassDEP Municipal Assistance Coordinator (MAC). MassDEP accepts applications three times per year: winter, summer and fall.

Minimum Eligibility Criteria
