Now is the season to save your food waste and yard waste and create compost, an invaluable ingredient for healthy flowerbeds and productive gardens. The Town now has for sale compost bins and compost pails (for collecting food scraps in your kitchen). The prices are a bargain and supplies are limited so take advantage of these special offers now. You'll cut down on your trash and save money by creating your own fertilizer! If you don't have a yard for composting, you can still collect your food waste and drop it off at the compost hopper outside the Meadow Farm gate on Meadow Road (1 1/2 miles south of Big Y on Tyringham Road). Or you could make compost inside. Just follow this link to the Center for EcoTechnology to find out how.
