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.


See you at our meeting in December.  Thank you for your support and for a great year for the Chapter during which we hosted a very successful and exciting SWANApalooza.
