We are excited to work with County Waste & Recycling and Foodscraps 360 offering recycling and composting at all of our feature events!! 

Reduce Waste | By composting, the average person can keep 230 lbs of food scraps out of the local landfill each year!
Curb Emissions | Reducing food scraps in our landfills means reducing climate changing gas emissions, such as CO2 and methane.
Replenish the Soil | Composted food scraps create a rich diet of microbes and nutrients for the soil, reducing the need for  chemical fertilizers. Kind of like a probiotic for dirt.

Healthy soils grows healthy food and plants.
