Striving for Excellence

ecomaine is proud to share that our organization is the cover feature article in Waste Advantage Magazine this June.  Our work in recycling, food waste diversion, waste-to-energy, commitment to safety and environmental excellence, as well as a significant investment in educational outreach are all covered in the article, available below.  Through challenges in recyclables markets and COVID-19, ecomaine has remained steadfast in its dedication to our mission. 

The benefits of waste-to-energy

A report released this week seeks to inform the waste industry, policymakers, and residents about the benefits of waste-to-energy facilities, like that at ecomaine in Portland.  “The Scientific Truth about Waste to Energy Facilities and Quantifiable Benefits They Provide” by chemical engineer and City College of New York professor Dr. Marco J. Castaldi, employs multiple independent scientific reviews to provide a modern and comprehensive appraisal of waste-to-energy’s advantages in providing a sustainable approach to solid waste.

ecomaine’s Busy Week

We at ecomaine pride ourselves on our education, outreach, and increasing awareness of sustainable waste management strategies.  This week has been full of highlights of such activities, and I’m pleased to share a few of them with you here.
