We’ve all been there – being kinder to our environment looks great on paper, but sometimes it just seems out of reach. It’s all too easy to get caught up in the daily grind and forget all about how much our planet needs our help. That’s why Sustainable Princeton has jumpstarted a Curbside Composting Pilot Program as a way to encourage Princeton community members to save their food scraps for the compost heap.
Beginning this month, participants in the program were given two garbage bins – one for food waste and one for solid waste – which are collected separately. All food waste is taken to an offsite composting plant so that participants who don’t have the time, space, or know-how to do backyard composting can still be involved in what has become a food waste management movement that’s taking the country by force.
