The South Shore Recycling Cooperative (SSRC) is a voluntary association of South Shore municipalities established in 1998.

The SSRC is a regional government entity with dedicated staff.


The SSRC helps its member municipalities improve their recycling programs, and reduce the quantity, toxicity and cost of disposal by:

  • Advocating for funding, sensible laws and regulations that accomplish the goal of minimizing waste and cost, and maximizing recovery of useful materials
  • Educating residents about how and why they should manage their waste materials thoughtfully
  • Maintaining a working knowledge of service providers and the most efficient systems available for managing municipal solid waste
  • Managing their solid waste programs efficiently
  • Providing economy of scale through regional procurement of services while allowing member towns to maintain full control over solid waste management
