Boston City Council will hold a hearing later this month to discuss the feasibility of a curbside composting program in Boston. The compost could be used for landscaping in City parks and gardens, or sold to local farmers to create a full circle of food for Boston residents.
Cambridge launched a pilot program in 2014 and collected 170,000 pounds of food scraps from more than 600 households last year. Other U.S. cities, such as San Francisco and Portland, have launched curbside composting programs and seen decreases in city trash production.
