MASS DEP Commissioner Martin Suuberg spoke at South Shore Recycling Cooperative’s 17th Anniversary Event on Thursday at Kingston’s Jones River Trading Co.
South Shore Recycling Cooperative works for the solid waste departments of 14 towns to help their managers save time and money. Claire Galkowski directs this team effort.
“We do that by providing services. We put them in touch with various vendors that they may not know about. We run monthly meetings where they can all get together and talk to each other about how they do things, who they use for vendors,” said Galkowski.
DEP Commissioner Martin Suuberg is in support of their efforts.
“They are doing so much on education, on identifying new opportunities, on making sure that we’re being smart and innovative. I wanted to show my support for their efforts including some of our funding for their efforts,” Suuberg said.
And, just who are those 14 cooperating towns? Galkowski tells WATD they’re “Abington, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hanover, Hanson, Hingham, Kingston, Middleborough, Norwell, Plymouth, Rockland, Scituate, Weymouth and Whitman.”
