Abstract

The goal of our project was to identify solutions in other communities in and around the United States to provide opportunities to recycle in public spaces such as parks, beaches, stadiums, and marinas. We interviewed local stakeholders and experts on the environment, and selected cases for further study based on their recommendations and our preliminary research on recycling in the United States. Our report highlights programs and legislation in eight communities in and around the United States that address the issue of public space recycling, and makes suggestions for a statewide public space recycling program for Massachusetts.
