How Municipalities Can Slash Trash, Revive Recycling and Catalyze Composting

You embrace recycling but still you have questions about your trash and recyclables. Should I be doing something different? Which types of plastic are okay? What matters most: reducing, reusing or recycling?

Meanwhile, our cities and towns are struggling with both the volume of trash and the rising expense of managing it. While recycling programs used to generate revenue for many towns, that is typically not the case now.

If you are asking these or other questions, join MetroWest Climate Solutions for a discussion with Kirstie Pecci on March 4 at 7 p.m. Pecci is the director of the Zero Waste Project and a Senior Fellow at Conservation Law Foundation. She is part of the Zero Waste Boston coalition, which advocates for zero waste solutions such as reuse, recycling, redesign and composting/anaerobic digestion in the City of Boston. To register:

The Zoom-based presentation will be followed by a Q&A, moderated by Joel Angiolillo. Angiolillo is a founder of MetroWest Climate Solutions, a President of the Weston Forest and Trail Association, and served as co-chair of the Weston Open Spaces and Recreation Committee.
