Food waste in our trash goes to incinerators or landfills. Both disposal methods result in greenhouse gases, most notoriously, methane, which is more than 85 times a more potent greenhouse gas than CO2.

Composting food waste has big benefits!

  • Creates healthy soil and food
  • Sequesters carbon
  • Reduces methane emissions
  • Produces jobs
  • Filters and cleans water while reducing runoff
  • For a healthy planet and for future generations, smash your pumpkins and learn about composting food waste!

A limited number of extra pumpkins will be on hand if you would like to participate and come learn about composting but don’t have pumpkins.

Please sign up for a specific 20-minute window.
