Massachusetts Lawmakers Support Climate Bill with Provisions Sought By NWRA Massachusetts Chapter


Arlington, VA – The Massachusetts chapter of the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) sought support for anaerobic digestion facilities in the final climate bill. The Massachusetts House and Senate conference committee reached an agreement on a comprehensive climate bill, which included language to support existing anaerobic digestion facilities operating in Massachusetts.

“We appreciate the support of the lawmakers and urge Gov. Baker to sign the bill into law,” said Lew Dubuque, NWRA vice president of chapter management. “This is what we can accomplish when our members make sure that their voices are heard on these important issues for the waste and recycling industry.”

The full House and Senate are expected to approve the report from the conference committee and send the bill to the governor for his signature.
