Scarborough Adult Ed Composting Class

April 26, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $5

Adult eduction class in Scarborough about the pilots and composting in general: 6:30-8:30 at Scarborough High School.


New! Did you know that in North America, an estimated 40% of waste in landfills is organic material? That’s a huge portion of food and compostable material that could be pulled out of the waste stream and put to better economic and ecological use. Scarborough just signed on one of its neighborhoods to be a pilot program for curbside food waste pickup through ecomaine, starting in Spring 2017. Maybe your neighborhood’s next! The result would be your food waste being collected, processed and repurposed into energy, animal bedding and fertilizer – right here in Maine – while also reducing carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. Listen, learn and ask questions about this new cutting-edge method of food waste recovery.

ecomaine is your community-owned nonprofit waste management company, providing comprehensive long-term solid waste solutions in a safe, environmentally-responsible, economically-sound manner; they’re leaders in raising public awareness of sustainable waste management strategies and offer this as a free community service.

The Adult Ed course fee is $5
