Did you know that food scraps and other compostable kitchen waste can add up to more than 25% of what we throw away? Instead of putting your food waste into plastic garbage bags and having it incinerated, imagine saving it and having it turned into a nutrient-rich “black gold” that feeds our gardens and crop fields.
Lexington Zero Waste Collaborative (LexZeroWaste) is partnering with the Town of Lexington to launch LexSORT (Lexington Shared Organics Recovered Together), a 6-month FREE community composting drop-off pilot program.
Lexington residents will be able to drop off household food scraps and compostable kitchen waste at their convenience starting September 13th at two outdoor locations:
- Lexington Community Center, 39 Marrett Rd.
- 173 Bedford St. (location of former Liberty Mutual building)
Residents must pre-register to participate in this 6-month pilot program.
