Executive Jan Gardner announced three new initiatives to encourage composting of food waste by residents, schools and businesses. Composting extends the life of landfills, conditions soils, and improves water and air quality, and was the recommendation of the Solid Waste What’s Next steering committee’s 2017 final report.
“We can be proud that Frederick County is moving in the right direction when it comes to composting,” commented Executive Gardner. “We want to demonstrate that composting works and to help establish a market for composting businesses in Frederick County.”
