Originally published at ilsr.org.
Join us for a webinar on November 1st at 2p.m. EST to hear from two cities with robust residential food waste collection programs; San Francisco, Calif. and Falls Church, Va. San Francisco has one of the longest-standing programs in the country, with mandatory recycling citywide. Alexa Kielty will discuss the creation of San Francisco’s organics recycling program for apartments, and working with non-English speaking communities. Falls Church, Va. has had a residential food waste drop-off program for a number of years, and started up its curbside collection program in 2017, partnering with two local composters to offer these services. Chris McGough will discuss details of Falls Church’s new program and its innovative methods for keeping costs low. Our presenters will share lessons learned and highlight innovative and original aspects of their programs.
