January 2020


Hello SNE Chapter Members,


I have a few updates for you.  


1. We had an information packed annual meeting on December 18th, including a special call-in from David Biderman, SWANA CEO and Executive Director, whose update is posted below along with a PFAS Fact Sheet from SWANA.  Also posted below are presentations from our speakers; George Aronson of CommonWealth Resource Management Corp. regarding Fiberight in Maine, and Harrison Roakes of Sanborn Head and Jonathan Kitchen of CEC who discussed PFAS issues.  Thank you to all our speakers, attendees and to CEC for hosting.  Mark you calendars for our Annual Golf Outing and Clambake on July 16, 2018 at The Brookside Club in Bourne.




2. SWANA was just named organization of the year by Waste Dive.  See SWANA's announcement and Waste Dive's announcement linked below.

3. The Chapter would love to have a Young Professional join our board.  Please contact me at pgoddard@townofbourne.com if you have someone in mind or would like to join yourself.  


4. MA Department of Environmental Protection has issued its draft 2030 Solid Waste Master Plan.  More information can be found at their website.  This plan highlights the capacity concerns we are facing in MA that are also present in Southern New England as a whole.  Click here - DEP 2030 SWMP.
