Curbside Food Recycling Pick-up Expands To Fairfield County
Over the past three months, Nick and Erica Skeadas’ Curbside Compost has partnered with a number of local organizations to bring its organic food scrap recycling service to Fairfield County. These organizations include Grace Farms Foundation, Winfield Street Italian Deli, Nature’s Temptations, O2 Living, HAPA Food Truck, Matt Dorfman Catering, Keter Environmental Services, Ridgefield Farmers’ Market Co-Op and Grana Pastificio.
With support from these organizations and local residents, Curbside Compost has already diverted more than 9,000 pounds of organics from incinerators. Their efforts support the community and the environment by increasing recycling in Fairfield County and providing everyone another opportunity to compost. Curbside Compost also provides waste minimization services at events by maximizing recycling and composting and minimizing waste sent to incinerators.
Interested households can be on a weekly pick-up schedule, which costs $6 per week, while larger generators and events require a more customized solution. Curbside Compost provides clean containers, which are replaced after each pick-up. Curbside Compost picks up meat, fish, bones, eggshells, coffee grounds, vegetables, table scraps and leftovers from food preparation. A complete list is available on CurbCompost.org.
Curbside Compost closes the loop by delivering finished compost back to the home or business as requested by customers. Residents then mix the compost into soil to nourish their plants and gardens.
