Connections: Discussing the rise in composting

Do you compost? According to the EPA, nearly 30 percent of what we throw away is made up of food scraps and yard waste. Nationally, composting is on the rise, and the practice is becoming more accessible to people who live in different settings – from apartments to houses, from cities to suburbs.

This hour, we continue our ongoing discussions about composting with local composters who share their methods. In studio:

  • Robert Putney, co-founder ofImpact Earth
  • Brent Arnold, co-founder of Community Composting
  • Emmett Wilson, Ph.D. candidate at the University of Rochester, and adjunct lecturer at Nazareth College
  • Tom Moore, teacher at Ellwanger-Barry Nursery School and Kindergarten
