Beyond the Bin

You might know Beyond the Bin from its home on RecycleSearch – and many of you link to Beyond the Bin on your municipal webpages.  Please be advised that as of today, November 1, the RecycleSearch website has been deactivated (anyone who finds that page will be redirected to the new site).  To avoid confusion for your residents, we ask that you please take some time today to update your links to the new Beyond the Bin location.

Where has it moved?

The new and improved Beyond the Bin directory is now part of Recycle Smart MA, along with the fan-favorite Recyclopedia, RSMA Quiz, and loads of other resources!  You can find it here: use this link!

What is Beyond the Bin?

Beyond the Bin is for next-level searching.  The directory helps Massachusetts residents find recycling and reuse outlets for household items -  including old electronics, plastic bags, furniture, and textiles – that cannot be recycled with household bottles, cans and paper.
