Lawmakers today will hear a proposal to allow the commercial composting of meat and dairy. The bill began with a group headed by a former UNH student.
The Post Landfill Action Network, or PLAN, got its start as a sort of student-run rummage sale, where students were encouraged to sell furniture and other items, rather than throw them out when they leave campus each year.
PLANs founder, Alex Fried, has since gone professional with his advocacy, starting a small non-profit.
One of their current projects is pushing to make UNH’s football stadium a zero-waste facility.
