Keep food scraps out of the landfill with home composting. Chittenden Solid Waste’s Community Outreach Coordinator, Lauren Layn, will outline the benefits of “closing the loop” with your own household food scraps and yard debris in a presentation on maintaining a healthy compost system. In 2012, the Vermont Legislature unanimously passed the Universal Recycling Law (Act 148), this presentation focuses on keeping organic materials – like food scraps and other food waste – out of the landfill, which will be required for all Vermonters by 2020. This free workshop will be on Wed., May 8 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. in the Shelburne Town Center Activity Room (ground floor). Please RSVP to 985-9551. Space is limited.
