City of Cambridge Now Accepting Food Compost!

City of Cambridge Now Accepting Food Compost!

A little while ago we posted about a couple who generated only one bag of trash for an entire year! One of their tactics included composting their food scraps. We live in a three family home literally surrounded by sidewalk. Not even a smidgen of grass to grow a mini garden. So we've asked our neighbors who have some green space if they'd be interested in compost if we were to start composting our kitchen scraps. Sadly, no takers...

And unfortunately we live in Boston, not Cambridge, but we're awfully pleased for our across-the-river neighbors who now have the option of bringing their food compost to the Cambridge recycling drop off center! To answer all your questions about this new program, click here.

If you're in the market for a simple, clean-lined countertop compost bin, check out the one pictured above from Gardener's Supply Company.
