Hamden Public Works Offers Informational Presentation on
Organic Composting and Food Waste Reduction
Recycling Coordinator Joe DeRisi and the Hamden Mayor's Office would like to share with residents a short - but highly informative - video presentation on organic composting and food waste reduction.
The Town of Hamden is encouraging all residents to reduce the amounts of food waste that they put into their trash receptacles. Costs for the disposal of organic solid waste are high, and the benefit of organic compost to our earth and community is even higher. We encourage our residents to do their part and compost responsibly!
Updates to the below presentation ! ***We did in fact distribute 100 composters ( and rain barrels) last year and more this year.*** The food scrap container collection is active at the transfer station and we have handed out over 100 pails donated by Hamden businesses.*** Bear path school is in fact capturing food waste and it is being transported to West Haven where it is being composted with leaves. Also, Bear path school is in the process of establishing on site composting.
