Our Community Composting Program

Are you composting with us yet?

In March, we began our Community Composting Pilot to help busy urban dwellers like you keep food waste out of the landfill.  It’s easy to do!  Just collect your food waste at home (even meat and dairy is eligible for this program) and bring it to the Y.  Once you’re here, you can weigh it and text the amount to track your diversion rate.  Each text enters you into a raffle to win great things from our community.  April’s raffle prize is a $50 gift certificate from Northern Spy , an amazing restauraunt that uses local, fresh and seasonal foods.

Our goal is to sign up 150 households, and  divert 1 ton of food waste from the landfill by EARTH DAY!  (that’s 4/22/13)

Have you signed up to compost with us?  Just email Camille_Diamond@14StreetY.org to get started.  Keep food out of the landfill, send it back to the earth, and complete the food cycle!
