Composting and Recycling

You can compost the paper you receive from the Horch campaign. Watch our video to learn how and why!

No Lawn Signs!

The Horch campaign will not be using lawn signs.

We're doing this to reduce our ecological footprint and to demonstrate how political campaigns can reduce and reuse.

Instead of lawn signs, my campaign is distributing bumper magnets, which you can re-use as a refrigerator magnet after the campaign.

No Glossy Garbage!

The Horch campaign will not be using glossy, full-color plastic-coated postcards or palm cards.

We're doing this to reduce our ecological footprint and to encourage composting.

Instead of hard-to-compost print materials, my campaign is using black ink on recycled paper to make it easy to compost.

Did You Know That Our Landfill Is Closing?

The Graham Road Landfill in Brunswick will be closing in April 2021. After that, our garbage will need to be taken to the Pine Tree Waste transfer station in West Bath. From there, it will be loaded on trucks and driven to another landfill or an incinerator.

Did You Know That the Global Recycling Industry Is In Turmoil?

For many years, recycling in Maine has not worked the way many people thought it did. But recently, more people are becoming aware of the fact that much material that could be recycled is not being recycled because the recycling infrastructure is not in place here in Maine or elsewhere in New England.
