MPBN Radio Reports on UMaine Trash Study

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network interviewed University of Maine economics graduate student Travis Blackmer about research he and colleagues did last year through the School of Economics assessing the contents of household garbage samples throughout Maine, which revealed 60 percent of what was discarded could have been recycled or composted at substantial economic savings to municipalities and their residents. A news release also has details.
