Smith, Kennedy Issue Joint Statement on Passage of Food Waste Legislation

Trenton – Senator Bob Smith and Assemblyman James Kennedy issued the following joint statement on the passage of the “food waste recycling” legislation, A-2371/S-865, by the Senate:

“New Jersey and the rest of the country have a food waste problem that is spiraling out of control. Due to the methane, a greenhouse gas that is emitted from decomposing food in landfills, food waste is contributing to the global rise in temperatures. With this legislation passed out of the Senate today, concrete steps were taken to enact policy that will have a real impact and help New Jersey fight against climate change.”
