You’ve probably heard a lot lately about our great little state’s efforts to get food scraps out of the trash and into compost piles (and generate electricity with them, as well!). Vermonters young and old, from Bakersfield to Bennington, are joining in!
Have you been thinking about how to get started? Can’t compost at home? NWSWD has got you covered with our Close the Loop Food Scrap Drop-Off Program!
Come by the Georgia Recycling Center, Hudak’s Farm Stand and Greenhouse on the St. Albans/Swanton town line, the St. Albans Drop-Off Site, the Bakersfield Drop-Off Site, or the North Hero Drop-Off Site during regular drop-off hours!! (Click for locations/hours.)
We have Food Scrap Drop-Off Starter Kits for only $10. Each kit has a bucket with a screw-top lid, a countertop food scrap container, and details about the program. Got your own bucket? That’s fine, too. Just drop in to one of the above locations and take home a copy of our program guidelines.
It’s easy to get started! Fill up your bucket with potato peels, leftovers, apple cores, whatever!!!, and dump it for free at participating sites. Repeat. That’s it. Simple. Easy. And you’ll be helping Vermont, our Green Mountain home.
