BDC Capital – Mass. Recycling Loan Fund – New Solid Waste Plan

Will the 2030 Solid Waste Master Plan create new opportunities for your business?

Massachusetts has published the new 2030 Solid Waste Master Plan. The Plan sets aggressive waste reduction goals and places an increased emphasis on building new recycling markets in Massachusetts. The Plan also establishes new waste disposal bans.

Effective next year on November 1, 2022:

  • Mattresses will be banned from disposal.
  • Textiles will be banned from disposal.
  • The threshold for the commercial organics disposal ban will be lowered to apply to businesses generating one-half ton (currently at one ton) or more of food material per week.

Administered by BDC Capital, and funded by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, the Recycling Loan Fund is an excellent way to obtain the financing you need for companies engaged in recycling, composting, and anaerobic digestion in Massachusetts.

Loans range from $50,000 to $500,000, and are used to help Massachusetts businesses active in recycling-related activities obtain the capital needed for any reasonable business purpose.

For a low cost, fixed rate financing, the Recycling Loan Fund can offer your business incentive financing with fixed rates as low as 2.0%!

Some examples of businesses we have financed include:

  • Anaerobic digester facility
  • Asphalt plant
  • C&D processing facility
  • Composting facility
  • Converter of paper with recycled content
  • Electronics recycler
  • Foundry
