The Tri-Town Health Department, the Lee Recycling Committee, and the Lenox Environmental Committee, supported by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and local volunteers, are examining issues surrounding the use of polystyrene drink and food containers and thin-film plastic bags. We are exploring options for possibly regulating either or both of them and promoting safe, reusable, and sustainable alternatives. Our goal is to have consistent measures across our three towns that enhance public and environmental health and reduce waste management problems.
