UMaine Garbage Study Reported

Reports about the University of Maine School of Economics’ study of garbage in Maine, and what’s in it that could be reused, recycled or composted, appeared on the Village Soup website. A Maine Public Broadcasting Network report about the research was posted on the Natural Resources Council of Maine’s website. School of Economics Director George Criner says almost half of what’s thrown in the trash could be diverted at substantial costs savings to Maine communities. Researchers will explain the project Friday, Nov. 18 in front of Memorial Union during a trash-sorting demonstration designed to encourage recycling.
