Hard to hear speaker
thanks for the feedback
Has DEEP looked into How2Recycle, http://greenblue.org/work/how2recycle/? Are they in support? Could help with recycling / composting??
I heard that New Milford Farms is not accepting food scraps anymore. Please confirm.
How is the Ridgefield program “self-funded” if they don’t charge -where does the $ come from?
Do you work with the UConn Extension Service and the Master Composter and Master Gardener groups?
Jen do you teacher composting classes outside of your HRRA communitites?
Where does meat and seafood fit into this program?
Mary - Newtown was self-funded and offer disposal for free. Ridgefield used the CT DEEP grant and charge residents $3 per tip.
Caren - you mentioned that a second anaerobic digester is expected to come online in 2019 - what is its location?
What was the tonnage for the 2017/2018 school year?
John can you provide an email to connect with you?
How is data collected, and who is designated responsible for collating and presenting the data?
FYI, my question was already answered.
John Phillips email Johnp@westhartfordct.gov
Jen - in discussing the Bridgewater program, you mentioned that you wished you had charged for participation. Could you clarify if you would have charged for participation in the program or just for the kits?
Is DEEP considering more grants for munipical pilot programs?
What did the financials look like for the West Hartford pilot program? What was the $/ton?
Does anyone know if Newtown’s municipal drop-off program suffered as a result of Quantum no longer taking bags?
Do you know what Covanta/Paines paid?
Because less is going to the WTE / LF facilities that should be a lower cost and could that fund the composting program?
Are the composting facilities capturing the off gases? I’ve heard some facilities have used that to power the pick-up trucks. That should help bring down costs. Also, with more folks composting wouldn’t the cost to compost come down in general?
Samuel - I do not know the cost they paid for the WH experiment.
