Maynard, MA - I just found this web site, from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. It's called Recycle Smart: https://recyclesmartma.org
There is a search feature on the site where you can enter the name of an item and it will tell you whether you can recycle that item in Massachusetts. Often it has helpful information as to why various items can or cannot be recycled.
Note: I believe that not all cities and towns go by the same standards, so I plan to gather more information on that question, as well as other questions I'm researching, soon. I plan to expand this story with what I learn.
