The state Department of Natural Resources is hoping to encourage more residents to recycle and utilize composting after a review of the state’s garbage found a large amount of cardboard, plastic and spoiled food in dumps across the state. 

Over the past year, employees from the department have been evaluating trash from 14 landfills across the state, representing about 72% of the state’s municipal waste, said Casey Lamensky, the solid waste coordinator for the department.
