UMaine Recycling Study Cited in Morning Sentinel Article

A 2012 University of Maine study was cited in a Morning Sentinel article about the Skowhegan Recycling Center agreeing to take Cornville’s recycled cardboard and paper, saving the town from having to truck its items to Dexter. The study suggested Maine was falling short of its goal of recycling at least 50 percent of the trash going to state landfills. A survey of 17 communities found that as much as 60 percent of what’s thrown away could have been recycled or composted.
