McIntire Compost Collection Will Continue

“Thank you! Wonderful. Keep It Going.” — area resident

We’ve received nothing but positive comments like that one from area residents about our food waste collection at McIntire Recycling Center and so we are glad to report that our Board of Directors approved an extension of the program through the end of June 2017 (end of our fiscal year)!  From January through October we have received a total of 14.4 tons food waste at McIntire, averaging about 1.4 tons per month, coming from nearly 400 cart pick-ups.  As a part of the program, we’ve also given away 9,000 complimentary bags for folks who are participating.  In partnership with the City and the County, we are glad to support recycling efforts in the community.
