December 20 Report:

Massachusetts NWRA members have been meeting regularly in preparation for the 2023 legislative session.  Members are working on presenting memos in opposition to EPR and Bottle Bill proposals to Governor Maura Healey, as well as proposals for minimum content legislation very similar to what was signed into law in New Jersey as well as an EPR program for lithium-ion batteries.

Members are also interested in growing our coalition by meeting with the Massachusetts Municipal Association as well as the Association of Mayors to discuss how we can work together to help improve education efforts with residents about recycling.
