Bring your food scraps to the Recycling Center for Composting!

Food scraps
A typical Connecticut family of 4 throws away $1600/year in food waste. Food scraps don’t belong in the trash. Heavy and expensive to transport to the incinerator, they can instead be turned into compost, a valuable resource. Litchfield is starting its own composting facility. Bring your scraps to the Litchfield Recycling Center and turn waste into “black gold.”
