Supporters

1,096 residents/groups support Town-wide Food Waste Collection, here are their words:

"Yes yes yes, this absolutely needs to be made town-wide!"

"Fully supportive"

"I'm so looking forward to town-wide composting!  It's way overdue."

"I’ve been waiting for this, it would be a great thing!"

"My trash pick up is once a month since we started compost pick up. This is a great initiative"

"It should be an obligation."

"Pick up must involve no additional cost to the resident to be fair to those of lower incomes."

"We already use Black Earth! It’s easy! It’s the least we could do as we experience the departure of the 4 seasons and record high temperatures in our area. Making composting easy and accessible throughout Lexington would be an excellent next step. Thank you for your efforts getting this started!!"

"I enthusiastically support this initiative and hope the town implements the program asap."

"We have been using Black Earth for a couple years and would love to see town wide food waste pick up for all"

"We have been composting with Black Earth for almost a year. I was pleasantly surprised at how incredibly easy it is!"

"We have been participating in the composting trial through the DPW and are happy that the town is listening to the interests of the residents. Thank you."

"We saw a huge reduction in trash volume from composting; paper towels, coffee grounds, leftovers, cut flowers…..anything [compostable]."

"One advantage of composting is to keep the smelly food out of regular trash and in small compost bags during the week."

"We are already onboard with composting and it should be made available to all households, just like trash & recycling pick up."

"Composting is easy and if town pick-up exists, [it] will make it so easy for everyone to participate" 

"Thank you green team for pushing for this change. Waste minimization is essential, and this step is a leap in the right direction. "

"This just makes plain sense!"

"We just moved from LA, which has city composting with curbside pickup, and were surprised that Lexington doesn't do this."

"I feel very strongly that this is an important step for Lexington to take and should not be something that people opt into doing. Waste is a huge problem!"

"Participating in LexSort. Can’t believe how much food we were putting in the trash. This was an eye opener for our family."

"We already reduce organic waste in our trash through use of worm bins, but recognize that this is not feasible for everyone. Getting organic waste out of the main waste stream is a first step towards reducing overall waste and shifting to a circular economy. Would love to see Lexington do this."
