Divert food scraps from the landfill2020-09-12T11:20:32-04:00

Did you know our members report they have reduced the volume of their trash by 30% to 60% by diverting their food scraps?  Moving to Conservers and the Transylvania County Solid Waste Authority partnered together and held an essay contest asking folks for suggestions on keeping food out of our landfill.  Althea Dunn made this wonderful poster of the suggestions.

Composting is a great way to divert your scraps!

Do you want to compost?  We can help.  We have built facilities at several locations in our community and are happy to build more.  We can also help with technical guidance if needed on managing a compost bin.

Not interested in a facility of your own?  We have a small directory of places you can take your scraps.  You can find it here.

You can also find places to share your scraps using the App ShareWaste.
