DFB Compost is a USDA-funded community organics and food waste recycling and compost pilot program. This pilot will develop and test strategies for potential future implementation of a large-scale compost program. In this pilot, we are collecting and recycling food scraps and some other organic materials.
This program includes subscription front porch organics and food waste recycling services to a sample of 100 residences and 5 businesses, as well as some community drop-off opportunities. The material collected is being processed into compost and redistributed in the community through events and partnerships with local community gardens.
