A lot of what we throw away isn’t really trash. It can be returned to the Earth. Food scraps and yard waste can easily be turned into nutrient-rich compost for your gardens, landscapes and lawn. Reduce your waste by composting!
Our Food Surplus Recovery Efforts
About 30% of food produced is not eaten. It produces harmful greenhouse gases when it goes to a landfill. We are working with local food-based businesses to help recover some of that food and redistribute it to people in need, and to collect the food scraps for animal food or composting.
