Greenmarket Food Scrap (Compost) Collection Schedule

Every Sunday Lucas and I drop off our compost over at one of the Greenmarket collection sites

It is a pretty awesome concept. Usually I save our compostable food scraps in our freezer and by Sunday we do a drop off. Below are the current sites and times as indicated on their website. Also, keep in mind that there are specific items that are considered "compostable" and those that are NOT. If you are unsure, here is a list

It is great to help compost, it does a tremendous for our environment!
