You can easily turn your food waste/compost into biogas by collecting it and bringing it to Wellesley’s own Recycling and Disposal Facility (RDF). Now that is renewable energy!
Wellesley residents are invited to participate in a food waste drop off program at the RDF that’s intended to reduce the amount of food waste going to landfills by making composting more convenient for residents.
The three-month pilot, part of a series of initiatives conducted by Wellesley’s 3R(Reduce Reuse Recycle) Working Group, will help the town determine if there’s enough interest to permanently offer the program. The 3R Working Group includes the Department of Public Works, the NRC and the Sustainable Energy Committee.
