A Different Way to Manage the Albany Landfill

Steve Hoyt of Northeast Biogas will present a program on anaerobic digesters on Wednesday, June 17. The program is co-sponsored by Save the Pine Bush and Citizens Environmental Coalition.

Anaerobic digesters are a potential technology for use in disposing of waste food and other organic waste. A number of Capital Region institutions, including colleges and universities, are considering developing a consortium to find a common solution to their waste food disposal problem. Household waste food could also be processed in this manner, thus keeping it out of the landfill.

The meeting is at the First Presbyterian Church in Albany, corner of State and Willett streets (one block west of Lark St.). Please use the State St. entrance.

The vegeterian lasagna dinner (which you are welcome to attend, $10 ea., $5 for Seniors) starts at 6:00. The program starts at 7:00.
