No Food Waste Day at the State House

This event is free and open to everyone who wants to see the goal that by July 1, 2020, every household will separate and recycle all of their food residuals (10 V.S.A. § 6605k) implemented. One path to achieving this goal locally and decentralized is to close the nutrient loop and return food scraps to farms where they serve as a chicken forage, a composting compound, and finally, a soil enhancer.
