Composting with the City of Fayetteville

Sunday, April 3 | 10:00 am

Learn about compost and the city’s curbside composting program. The presentation will include a description of Fayetteville’s food waste compost programs, discuss the importance of keeping food out of the landfill, highlight the immense benefits of composting food waste, and more. Fayetteville residents will be able to take home a food waste bucket to help make participating in Fayetteville’s residential food waste drop-off program even easier. The Recycling and Trash Division’s 16-foot food waste and compost education trailer will also be on display.

Taylor Gladwin is an environmental educator for the City of Fayetteville in the Recycling and Trash Division while also earning her Master’s in Sustainable Development and Policy. She focuses on educating businesses, schools, community groups, and residents of all ages about food waste and Fayetteville’s compost programs. She has been instrumental in building Fayetteville’s residential food waste drop-off program, and you might have seen her handing out food waste buckets at the Farmers’ Market this year.
