Ordinances and Regulations
See all Ordinances listed under the heading Refuse and Litter.
In March 1991, the City Council passed the Mandatory Recycling, which requires recycling at all buildings that generate waste in Cambridge. See the Rules & Regulations specific to commercial establishments.
In 1990, Massachusetts waste bans were introduced on landfilling and combustion of easy-to-recycle and toxic materials. Additional "waste bans" have been phased in over time.
