Solid Waste Management Contracts & Contracting

Helpful resources for municipal recycling and solid waste coordinators across Massachusetts.

Working with a consultant, MassDEP developed the resources listed here for town and city recycling coordinators. 

Finalized in 2020, the documents in the first two sections provide tools for communities with curbside collection programs to use in developing strong partnerships with collection vendors and processing facilities (MRFs).

A third section provides links to state waste equipment, service, supply, and consulting contracts available to all Massachusetts municipalities.
