Lee speaks to Times Record about the financial benefits of composting

In an article about a Brunswick campaign to promote how food waste recycling could help residents save both dollars and the environment, the Times Record interviewed Susanne Lee, faculty fellow at the University of Maine Senator George J. Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions, about the benefits of keeping food waste out of landfills. “There’s a tremendous win-win-win opportunity in food waste. There’s a huge economic benefit to both the community at large and residents of the community. There’s a huge social benefit in terms of food insecurity and in terms of health outcomes for communities that manage their food waste better, and there’s obviously a fantastic environmental impact,” Lee said.
