City of Lebanon
♻️ CONGRATULATIONS to Lebanon, New Hampshire! ♻️
We LOVE it when a community that's already doing a great job recycling strives to do even better! Last year, the Lebanon Solid Waste Facility started a new Food Scrap Drop-off program. 175 households piloted the program and helped keep 39 TONS of food scraps out of the landfill!
The EPA estimates that more food reaches landfills and incinerators than any other single material in our everyday trash, constituting 22 percent of municipal solid waste, so diverting this waste is hugely beneficial!
