A Fairfield, Conn., taskforce and the town’s Recycling Department and Commission have launched a pilot program to encourage residents to recycle their food waste via composting or curbside pickup.
To encourage at-home composting, the Sustainable Fairfield Task Force will hold free seminars that demonstrate how to compost food scraps at home. In addition, attendees will receive a free under-sink composting bin and sample composting bags, as well as a discount on a backyard bin. The pilot program also aims to increase composting through a curbside pickup initiative.
