DPW Welcomes 2014-2016 Recycling Advisory Committee Members
Early this morning, the Department of Publics Works hosted a small event to welcome the 12 members of the 2014-2016 Recycling Advisory Committee (RAC) and to thank past members. The event included a presentation highlighting the City’s recycling programs and events, past Recycling Advisory Committee decisions, tips for reducing waste, and concepts to help residents and business owners understand what zero waste is and the link between climate change and materials.

City Manager Rich Rossi, DPW Commissioner Owen O’Riordan and Recycling Director Randi Mail, were in attendance to express their gratitude to past members and to welcome new members. After the event, Randi Mail praised the work of the Recycling Advisory Committee. “It is my sincere honor to thank the outgoing members of the City of Cambridge’s Recycling Advisory Committee, thank the members that will serve again, and to welcome the new members to the committee. Working with the RAC over the past 12 years has been a high point of my job as Recycling Director. These are some of the most dedicated, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and resourceful residents and professionals that I have met”, Mail said.
The Recycling Advisory Committee was established in the City’s Mandatory Recycling Ordinance passed in March 1991 and has been a tremendous force in growing our programs and volunteering to make our program the success that it is. The RAC provides advice, assistance and recommendations to the DPW Commissioner regarding the City’s recycling, toxics reduction and waste prevention programs as well as the implementation of strategies to meet the goals in the Massachusetts Solid Waste Master Plan, Pathway to Zero Waste, and the City’s Climate Protection Plan.
