Has DEEP looked into How2Recycle, http://greenblue.org/work/how2recycle/? Are they in support? Could help with recycling / composting??

Mary Hogue

Mary - Newtown was self-funded and offer disposal for free. Ridgefield used the CT DEEP grant and charge residents $3 per tip.

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?

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?
Mary Hogue
01:33:47
Because less is going to the WTE / LF facilities that should be a lower cost and could that fund the composting program?
Mary Hogue
01:37:07
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?
John Phillips
01:40:27
Samuel - I do not know the cost they paid for the WH experiment.
Samuel King
01:41:05
Cool, cool.
