CITY OF BEACON COMPOSTING PILOT
Want to help reduce climate change? Participate in Beacon’s municipal compost program where you can drop off your food waste for free at three locations. Composting is a great way to reduce the waste burned at the county incinerator, which can contribute to unsafe air conditions because “waste incineration creates and/or releases harmful chemicals and pollutants” (NRDC.org, Burned: Why Waste Incineration Is Harmful). We have also distributed 100 subsidized bins for backyard composting as well. Scroll down to find more details about composting at home.
All Beaconites are welcomed and encouraged to use the compost drop-sites. These are not available for use by businesses at this time.
