In Springfield, food waste is the second largest component of our collective waste stream, accounting for over 12% of the waste that makes it to the landfill every day. That’s over 31,000 tons of food and organic material being sent to our landfill every year. Dish to Dirt is a home composting program that allows us to educate and engage the community on this topic, but to also institute new practices and behaviors at home.
Home Composting We Dish the Dirt
In fact, Dish to Dirt is the name of our new home composting program. We provide residents in the Waste District O region, (Greene, Christian, Webster, Polk, and Dallas counties) with composting education opportunities, resources for composting materials, tips and how-to. Sign up and be a part of Dish to Dirt, today!
