Tour, and Movie Night October 24, 2012
In October the NYSAR3 (New York State Association for Reduction,
Reuse, & Recycling) and St. John's University hosted an event
where the EPA Food Recovery Challenge was discussed. A tour was
also given of the St.
John's O2 Composting Facility. Among those who attended
this event was Rachel Chaput from the Sustainable Materials
Management Program at EPA Region 2. She described EPA's WasteWise
Program and its potential financial benefits of reducing food
waste. This free program allows participants to redirect waste from
landfills and incineration.
