WESTFORD — Members of the Recycling Commission are gearing up to teach residents about composting.
“Composting diverts food wastes from the trash and reduces the high cost of Westford’s trash collection which increased 9% this year,” wrote the Recycling Commission in a news release. “Composting is a powerful tool to reduce Westford’s trash.”
Residents will be able to purchase Earth Machine backyard composters during the demonstrations. Composters are $25 per bin.
The commission is hosting three separate events on Saturday, July 23, Saturday July 30 and Saturday Aug. 6 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Demonstrations will be held at the Highway Department.
