Category: Community Compost Drop-off Location

Moving to Conservers is currently working on cataloging comPosts sites in the area. This is a working page towards publishing a directory that lets citizens know where they can drop off their compost.

 

Why compost?

  • Food scraps and other organic material turns to soil and can be used to grow food and flowers (food for pollinators).
  • Organics in landfills break down anaerobically (without oxygen) to produce methane gas, a greenhouse gas 21 times more harmful than CO2.
  • Keeps a valuable resource out of the landfill.
  • Waste less water since compost helps with moisture retention.
  • Reduce civic costs for waste collection and thereby reduce fuel use.
  • Extend the life of landfills.

Why a directory of drop-off locations?

  • Some of our members do not have the space or facilities to compost at home.
  • Some of our members who do have the space prefer to donate their scraps to gardens and farms so that it can be used for local food production.

We Invest Locally

$1000 invested locally

Moving to Conserver members have invested $1000 in local farmers by purchasing Community Supported Agriculture Shares.   That makes us pretty awesome. Just saying...
