Who runs this directory?
This directory is administered by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, the state agency charged with protecting public health and the environment. Our goal is to increase recycling and waste diversion in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts by helping you find ways to recycle items that don’t go in your recycling bin.
If I need to recycle traditional materials (paper, cardboard, bottles, and cans), do I use this directory?
This Beyond the Bin Directory is meant to help you recycle unique and hard-to-handle items that don't go in your recycling bin or recycling cart. While some of the outlets listed in this directory may accept material that have traditionally been handled by municipal recycling programs (such as paper, cardboard, bottles, cans, etc.), many of the outlets listed here do not accept these materials. To find out about recycling traditional recyclables, please check your municipal recycling web site or contact your local Department of Public Works before using this Beyond the Bin Directory. MassDEP provides an alphabetical listing of municipal recycling programs.
