Recycle Smart MA

Have you ever been unsure about which items can be recycled, which items should be disposed of, or which items are considered too hazardous to put in your trash bin? Type the name of the item in the Recyclopedia from Recycle Smart MA and find out! Visit for more details.

Try MassDEP's Beyond the Bin to see if an item is recyclable in Massachusetts. Find out where to recycle, reuse, or repurpose items in Massachusetts.


Instead of tossing usable items, give them to a charity or other organization that will pass them along to others.
