Food scraps account for over 22% of Connecticut’s municipal solid waste. This pilot program is organized by the Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board and Waste Free Greenwich, in partnership with the Town’ s Department of Public Works, the Conservation Commission and Greenwich Green & Clean.
This drop-off program will be voluntary and free to all residents. Food scraps will be collected at home, brought to a designated location at Holly Hill and then hauled to a commercial composting facility to be turned into nutrient-rich compost. All food, including meat and dairy, tea bags, cut flowers and paper towels will be accepted.
GG&C is participating in this important waste reduction program by offering starter kits containing collection bins, compostable bags and an easy to follow guide for $20. Call 203-531-0006 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: The Coronavirus has delayed the planned April start, so please, no food scraps to Holly Hill YET! Announcements will be coming.
