Hearthside Lecture: Reducing Food Waste
February 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Reducing Food Waste is Easy and Important
Thursday, February 15, 6:30pm at Hills Branch Library, 210 Washington St.
Hear from Jeff Azano-Brown, Superintendent of the Recycling and Disposal Facility in Wellesley, about the new food waste drop-off pilot program at the RDF. Wellesley’s 3R (Reduce Reuse Recycle) Working Group has initiated this project to rescue surplus food and reduce the amount of organic waste going to landfills.
The Swellesley Report’s own Deborah Brown will also be on hand to give a resident’s perspective of participating in the food waste drop-off pilot program. She will tell all about her family’s spent egg shells; the aesthetics of the food-waste bin and how she feels about keeping one more thing on the kitchen counter; the true story about the ick factor; and unwanted, smug greener-than-thou feelings that have surfaced.
