Andover WECAN Beyond the Bin: Don't Throw Your Spaghetti in the Fireplace

Thursday, April 15, 2021 - 7:00pm

Seems obvious not to throw your spaghetti in the fireplace right? Well then why would you throw it in your trash? In Andover, as with most Massachusetts towns, our trash is incinerated. We want to keep that process burning cleanly and we want to create new healthy soil. How can we do both? Compost.

Come to this webinar to learn why composting is worth the effort and why gardeners think compost is black gold. Learn how composting helps to reduce the impacts of climate change. Julia Greene, Municipal Asst Coordinator at the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MA DEP) will speak on what is happening with composting in our region. Sandra Gerraughty, Department of Public Works, Business Manager and Rachel Ciaramitaro, Department of Public Works, Office Assistant  will share what Andover is doing with composting and our other refuse streams.

Register through Zoom.

This series is presented in partnership with Andover WECAN and Memorial Hall Library.
