Today’s guest blog article is by John Watson who writes regularly for the Halton Recycles Blog. It’s just a bit dated since Downton Abbey has already begun, but the information is still pertinent and fun!
The Harraseeket Inn is a member of the Green Hotel Association and a Maine Certified Environmental Leader located in Freeport, Maine. NERC's Spring Workshop is being held at the Inn. The Inn goes beyond just the usual water conservation promotion of encouraging guests to reuse towels and linens. It actively recycles and composts.

Recently I participated in a Northeast Scrap Tire Market Development Workshop organized by the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) to address market development opportunities for tires in the Northeast. The closing of the ReEnergy Sterling (Exeter) Tire-to-Energy Facility located in Sterling, Connecticut in October precipitated the meeting. Prior to its closing, approximately eight million scrap tires generated in the Northeast were sent to the facility each year. The meeting brought together private sector haulers, tire processors, and state representatives to discuss options for future market growth in the Northeast.
