Lessons Learned from Implementing the Food Recovery Hierarchy:
NEWMOA & NERC Project Results

Free Webinar

Please join The Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA) and the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) to learn about their recent projects focused on reducing wasted food and its’ disposal. While the projects worked in rural and small town communities, the outreach materials developed and lessons learned apply everywhere!

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email from “NEWMOA Office” containing information about joining the webinar.

 Jennifer Griffith will present NEWMOA’s Promoting Strategies to Keep Food Waste Out of Landfills project that worked with solid waste and regional planning districts in rural areas of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. The NEWMOA project focused on outreach to residents to reduce the generation of wasted food and increase backyard composting, and on holding events to promote connections between farms, businesses, institutions, food pantries, community meal providers, gleaning groups, and other organizations to increase the recovery and donation of good food.

Athena Bradley will present NERC’s Implementing Food Waste, Organics, and Manure Management in Rural Maryland Communities project that worked in two rural counties in Maryland. The NERC project developed outreach materials, held training events, and provided technical assistance on a variety of food waste topics, including food waste reduction in schools, community composting, and incorporating food scraps in an anaerobic digestor. 

Jennifer and Athena will also share information about the resources they’ve developed for other USDA-funded waste reduction projects, including those focused on composting food scraps, increasing reuse, promoting pay-as-you-throw and reuse and recycling of bulky wastes and waste paint, and improving safety at rural transfer stations.
