LexSORT: FREE Community Composting Pilot Program Begins September 13th; Pre-Registration Required

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.

Special thanks to the Community Endowment of Lexington, an endowed fund of the Foundation for MetroWest, for generously supporting this pilot with a grant.
