Compost Awareness Week is in May
Food scraps are valuable, but not in your household recycling bin.
Composting organic materials, such as food scraps, reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills or at combustion facilities. However, food scraps put in household recycling bins can actually ruin valuable recyclables and those equally valuable food scraps are lost as well. #RecycleRightNY and send food scraps to the soil, not your recycling bin!
