Reduce Waste

Reduce food waste.

Compost your food waste!  It makes up about ⅓ of your trash. Reduce your carbon emissions from incineration (¾ of a ton per year) by recycling the nutrients in your food waste.

Reduce overall consumption: buy less, buy local and enjoy more.  Lexington households generate about ¾ of a ton of carbon emissions from their trash each year.

Use less plastic and learn to recycle the right way.
