#59: Coal, Cardboard, and Compost

Take a bike ride with me through coal country of Eastern KY, and hear the mountains being trucked away. To where? Mountains of landfills full of consumer goods in Western Mass? And then there’s cardboard, mountains of Amazon boxes. What does online shopping mean for trash haulers? And then there’s compost. Susan Waite, Northampton recycling coordinator, talks briefly about the negative effects of putting organics in the trash. And then there are a couple of interviews from a composting conference I went to in FL in January: Brenda Sanders talks about incinerators and community gardens in Baltimore, Debbie Ullman shares her New York comPost box project, and Michael Robinson talks about collecting compost by bike in Cleveland, OH.
