John and I joined ShareWaste a couple of years ago but there were few if any others in the area signed up. I honestly had forgotten about it. A few weeks ago, we were contacted by someone in Mills River looking for a home for her food scraps. She had found us on ShareWaste. We met in the Walmart parking lot in Brevard and we received a 5-gallon bucket of much-needed scraps for our compost system. We never have enough scraps to produce the amount of compost we need for our garden. Now we have a new stream and are looking for more. If you have scraps you would like to put to use let us know and/or sign-up on ShareWaste and let’s increase our community’s ability to feed itself.
You can find the website here: https://sharewaste.com/
They also have an app you can download for your phone. Happy food scraping 🙂
