On Friday July 17, 2020, Lebanon’s effort to reduce the amount of food scraps being landfilled was highlighted on By Degrees°, a new climate reporting initiative by NHPR. 

The "Got Food Scraps?" residential compost pilot program was launched in December 2019 under the direction of Lebanon Solid Waste Manager, Marc Morgan. Local community members were invited to participate in the program and track their waste, food scraps, and recyclables to determine the impacts of food on our waste system. 

To learn more about the outcome of the pilot program, please read or listen to "Lebanon Landfill’s 11-Family Compost Pilot Diverts One Ton of Food Scraps". It is hoped that a food scrap program will be available for area residents by Fall 2020.
