Jade Boehmer - Maryland Intern

Let’s Talk About Residential Composting in Maryland

June 27, 2022

In the summer of 2021, I began working with Clean Water Action as an intern to help with some of their policy research projects, primarily concerning Maryland’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard, trash incineration, and waste disposal in general. As I delved deeper into our current waste management systems, I learned more about alternatives and better solutions to the systems that we have now, which reminded me of the feasibility and simplicity of sorting waste during my time studying abroad in Lucca, Italy.
