Science Website Carries UMaine Trash Report

The science website Phys.Org has posted a University of Maine news release about the results of a study overseen by University of Maine School of Economics Director George Criner on the contents of garbage in a sampling of more than 15 Maine communities. Researchers found that 60 percent of what’s typically thrown in the trash could be recycled, composted or reused at substantial financial savings for communities and consumers.
