Recycling and Waste to Energy

Curious about where your trash and recycling actually go when you throw them “away”? Join Lena Ives, one of ecomaine’s environmental educators, to explore the next destination for your trash and recycling, why reducing waste matters, and practical tools for individuals and communities to evolve alongside ecomaine’s sustainable waste management practices.


After finding her passion for the environment while spending summers in Denmark, Maine, Lena received a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resources from the University of Connecticut. She came to the recycling and waste industry after years of finding ways to reduce her own personal waste, and hopes to use her experience to help others on their own journey of becoming more aware about their waste.
