WASTE: Take The 1 Minute Survey

Not only does the Town of Wellesley pay $86/ton to haul our trash to a landfill in New York State, the US EPA estimates that food waste makes up nearly 30% of the weight of trash deposited in landfills.  This waste produces methane emissions that create up to 80 times more greenhouse gas impact than CO2.

Thus, Wellesley’s Reduce Reuse Recycle {3R} Working Group issued a survey to explore ways to cut down on the amount of food waste sent to landfills.

They are asking residents and business to please take this food waste diversion survey.

Perhaps a long term goal is to send food waste to a local compost facility, returning it to the earth as healthy fertilizer.
