NERC staff conducted a New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services continuing professional development workshop on Food Scrap Management in May 2016. The training was attended by 60 operators.
The three-hour workshop provided an overview of the benefits of diverting food scraps from the wastestream and options for collection, primarily looking at residential food scrap collection. The main focus of the workshop was on composting which included an overview of compost principals, recipe development, and process management. A primary component of the training was a focus on how food scraps could be added to existing leaf and yard trimmings processing efforts at transfer stations. An overview of the New Hampshire permit requirements for compost operations accepting food scraps was presented by DES staff.
