EBC Presents a Private Solid Waste Forum with Jim Colman
June 24, 2008 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am
A Focus Group Discussion has been scheduled with Jim Colman, Assistant Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)to provide input to the DEP around an updated Solid Waste Master Plan and a materials management strategy for the Commonwealth.
In January, in testimony before the Joint Legislative Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture, EEA Secretary Ian Bowles announced that MassDEP will conduct an intensive review of solid waste policies to consider ways to maximize the use of biofuels and recycling opportunities, and to address concerns that a large amount of waste is being transported outside the state for disposal. Join us to hear Jim Colman, Assistant Commissioner at MassDEP, speak about the goals and objectives of this review, and take advantage of this opportunity to provide your comments directly to MassDEP on these topics.
