Image thanks to, Waste & Resources Action Programme
In the first 12 weeks of Wellesley’s food waste pilot project, over 10 tons of food waste was diverted from the landfill and sent to Waste Management’s CORe facility in Charlestown where it was made into a slurry and then sent to an anaerobic digester at the Greater Lawrence Sanitary District resulting in the generation of approximately 3,000 kwh of electricity.
In this second phase, Wellesley is looking to scale up the program. If you missed it the first time, you now have the opportunity to participate by filling out this sign up form. Its free, easy and very gratifying.
They RDF sends a big thanks to those who already participate.
