Food scrap collection for composting?

lgss | Mar 11, 2008 06:24 PM

Cambridge, MA is running a trial of providing household containers for food scraps that residents can bring to a recycling site to be composted. Some restaurant and health food stores are participating in the program for businesses. If you live in Cambridge, consider participating. They run the trial until July and then decide whether to continue. If you live elsewhere, does your city/town offer this. Consider suggesting they do so. We live in a very small house with an even smaller yard so we're not in a position to compost at home and my husband has said I can't have a worm bin :-) I'm currently using the program as part of my exercise program. It's a 5-mile round-trip walk, so I do that rather than drive my Prius or take the bus.
