The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection has begun to draw up a new waste disposal master plan.

A coalition of environmental groups, including MASSPIRG, Toxics Action Center, and the Conservation Law Foundation have announced the Campaign for Zero Waste.

The goal of the campaign is to bring about a dramatic change in the state’s current waste management practices that rely on landfills, incinerators, and recycling centers.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Janet Domenitz of MASSPIRG.
