"Let's sort through trash for a less trashy tomorrow" by Jordan Michael Kincaid EP '13, in the Poughkeepsie Journal
The Bard CEP Waste Audits Team is auditing the waste streams of several businesses in the Town of Red Hook as part of the Town's Climate Action Plan to improve its commercial sustainability and reduce its refuse footprint. The team is providing free information and advice about recycling, composting, and sustainability as part their CEP consultancy project. Jordan Michael Kincaid is a first-year graduate student at the Bard Center for Environmental Policy in Annandale.
"Municipal or private recycling dropoff or pickup is generally available for residences, and if you have a yard, composting is as simple as a ring of chicken wire pushed into the ground. Work, however, poses more of a challenge, because if you’re not the owner or manager, you don’t have as much control over waste management practices.
This is where the Bard Center for Environmental Policy Waste Audits Team comes in. Seven graduate students are working with the Town of Red Hook on the Commercial Waste and Sustainability sector of its Climate Action Plan. The goal, very broadly, is to develop strategies for businesses to improve their waste management."
