when did you work with LA? What results have they seen so far??
Deane Coady
01:02:50
50% reduction from 2015 to 2030? DPW has already had a nearly 4,000 drop since 2015 which represents one third drop! I think!
Erin Gallentine
01:17:51
A couple other items to keep on the radar in terms of priorities for the plan include regional approaches and best practices. I also think that we should encourage ourselves to be innovative and potentially pilot projects and take risks to determine what is most effective and works for Brookline.
Erin Gallentine
01:25:25
Composting is a newer initiative for the Town. Should this be a primary focus moving forward? Are there other areas that SWAC or the Public think are categories that need more attention?
Erin Gallentine

Thank you Kaity!

No Eva. Stick with backyard composting. Might be the best!!
Clint Richmond

People who consume meat may find backyard composting challenging. Compostable plastics are also not usually backyard compostable.
Clint Richmond
01:41:00
I would not rule out the Town offering composting as a service
