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 every year. Food Matters is a commercial composting program that allows us to encourage participation and provide education and engagement with the community which may develop new practices and behaviors in homes and businesses.
COMING LATER THIS YEAR!
Stay tuned for more details as they are released.
