6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join Eliza, Brunswick’s Organics Recycling Intern, for a Zoom based information session on the Town of Brunswick’s food waste recycling initiative. This presentation will focus on highlighting the different approaches to food waste recycling in Brunswick.
These three approaches include:
- Accessing food waste drop off sites;
- Participating in home composting;
- Subscribing to a food waste recycling service, Garbage to Garden.
This presentation is supported by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and is funded in part by a DEP Waste Diversion Grant. This grant is helping Brunswick achieve its goal to double its tonnage of food waste that is diverted from being landfilled by August 2023. Eliza’s position as a grant funded intern involves increasing public awareness around food waste recycling in the community by hosting community workshops and presentations during the spring and summer of 2022. Eliza is a recent graduate of Bates College and was drawn to this position by her love of gardening and recreating outdoors. She is excited to help Brunswick in their mission to become a more environmentally conscious community through intentional food waste diversion.
Registration is required!
