Did you know that in Kent County 35% of our waste is food waste? Organic waste in a landfill creates methane, a potent greenhouse gas. When food waste is composted and used to fertilize gardens and build healthy soil, it results in negative net greenhouse gas emissions. We want to make Rockford a composting community and we are working on a pilot program to offer a central drop-off site for your food waste for those who don't wish to compost at home. Please take our short survey to let us know your interest.
