Laws and Regulations
In its Beyond 2000 Solid Waste Master Plan, Massachusetts adopted a 70% waste reduction goal by 2010. This goal includes source reduction, recycling, composting and other diversion of both municipal solid waste and non-municipal solid waste (primarily construction and demolition debris). The 2001 waste reduction rate is 57%, up from 51% in 1999. Nearly 90% of the population has the ability to participate in a comprehensive program. The Beyond 2000 Solid Waste Master Plan includes an increased emphasis on source reduction and product stewardship, a goal to substantially reduce the use and toxicity of hazardous products and provide for statewide collection access and more stringent regulations to ensure that waste that is not diverted is safely disposed.

  • Massachusetts On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) test
    OBD stands for "on-board diagnostics." Most 1996 or newer vehicles have standardized computer systems and sensors that monitor the performance of their engines and emissions control systems. OBD verifies whether all of your vehicle's emissions components, including the catalytic converter, are functioning properly. Your repair technician uses OBD to diagnose problems and fix your vehicle.

  • A new study sheds light on who is recycling in Massachusetts and helps focus plans to improve participation. ... The survey revealed that most residents are well aware of recycling’s benefits. More than 90% of respondents to the telephone survey agree that recycling is good for society. Close to 80% believe that recycling conserves resources and most think that individuals can help solve solid waste problems. Hearing the recycling message and acting on it, however, do not seem to correlate. Though the state has spent several years focused on providing recycling services to previously unserved segments of the population, recycling participation in 2000 has remained statistically unchanged since 1996. http://www.globalgreen.org/bear/Links/link%20attachments/MA%20Resource%20Recycling%20Article.doc
  • Waste Cap of Massachusetts, a partnership between Massachusetts businesses and the Department of Environmental Protection, is a nonprofit organization created to help businesses in Massachusetts reduce and recycle non-hazardous solid waste. Waste Cap has helped over 2,500 Massachusetts companies make waste reduction and recycling a regular part of their business practices. In 1998, 22 office buildings competing in a Waste Cap sponsored contest recycled 2,236 tons of material in three months and achieved impressive recycling rates of up to 76 percent per building. Waste Cap has also conducted 108 site visits to Massachusetts companies and institutions resulting in significant increases in types and quantities of materials recycled. For the Challenge, Waste Cap commits to create recycling cooperatives to help small businesses find efficient and cost-effective recycling programs. In addition, Waste Cap commits to recruit 50 new businesses to start recycling through a recycling cooperative.
  • MIT researchers affiliated with the Laboratory for Energy and the Environment are gaining atomic-level insight into how sulfur in engine exhaust "poisons" advanced catalytic converters, reducing their ability to remove noxious emissions from car engines. Understanding that process is a first step toward preventing it, thereby making viable new fuel-efficient engine designs. "Removing sulfur from fuel is difficult and costly, so we need to develop a sulfur-resistant catalytic converter that will work with the lean-running engines now being designed," said Bernhardt Trout, associate professor of chemical engineering and principal investigator of the work. "Lean-running engines operate with excess air and are highly efficient, which means low fuel consumption and low emissions." The work focuses on a promising catalytic converter with two components: a platinum catalyst that converts carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in exhaust to carbon dioxide and water, and a barium oxide "trap" that captures nitrogen oxides. The converter thus controls emissions that can harm human health and contribute to the formation of smog and acid rain. http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2003/sulfur-0924.html
    The researchers found high concentrations of platinum, palladium, rhodium and osmium in air over the Boston metropolitan area. Although these particles — known as platinum group elements — are not yet considered a serious health risk, evidence suggests they potentially could pose a future danger as worldwide car sales increase from an estimated 50 million in 2000 to more than 140 million in 2050. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2005/12/051206084209.htm
