AP Reports on UMaine Trash Analysis Project

The Kennebec Journal carried an Associated Press article about a recently concluded University of Maine School of Economics research project assessing the contents of household trash discarded in 17 Maine communities to see what could be composted or recycled to reduce solid waste costs. The study found that as much as 60 percent of waste could have been diverted from the sampled waste stream.
