Composting Program so far...

The composting program started January 9th, 2017, the first of its kind in Westchester.

Here is the compost residents brought so far by week and the starter kits sold.

First four weeks' total is 3,520 lbs.
The next two weeks' total is 3,600 lbs. Definitely picking up !!!

I know in the first two weeks 200 kits were sold. So, there are definitely some very interested individuals, but it does not look like too many residents have caught up with the program so far. May be the are just not buying the kits...The numbers are growing which is encouraging.

Composting is a great way to return to the soil what we have taken from it. Instead of our food scraps being mixed in with the household garbage and going to incinerators, this is making use of your every day garbage. 

It is easy, green and good for Earth !
