Compost Drop-Off Program
Here's a shocking statistic for you:
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the total generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) in 2018 was 292.4 million tons or 4.9 pounds per person per day.
How can you help? Start by composting your food scraps! If you don't have a compost at home, allow us to take care of it for you. Thanks to the UofA Compost Cats, participants are able to collect their household food scraps and bring them to the Tucson Village Farm's 'Big Farm,' once a week. (There's actually a couple locations, click here to find the location nearest you).
Compost is great for improving soil health, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and recycling nutrients. Composting household food waste is also a great way for individuals to reduce their environmental impact and mitigate climate change.
Since Compost Cats launched the program in the Fall 2020, they have diverted over 45,000 lbs of food scraps from the landfill! That's a LOT!
