Food Waste

Food Waste

Once all the cooking and eating is done with, we're left with food waste. Food makes up a large proportion of our community's waste stream, but is valuable for restoring nutrients and organic material in our soils. At home, you can put your food scraps in the City's organic waste collection bins, or in a backyard composter.
