Natural Recycling: Composting Your Food Waste

After you separate regular recyclables from your trash, what’s left? Much of our trash is actually food waste, and that, too, can be recycled by turning it into compost. 

We’re promoting a pilot program to encourage the growth of local companies that collect food waste (also called organics waste) from homes, events, businesses, etc., and turn it into compost.
