Greenbelt Composting Survey
The Zero Waste Circle's Organics Task Force has developed a quick 5-question survey for Greenbelt residents. They  want to know if you  would be interested in a program to collect food scraps  for composting , which would divert them from the landfill. If there is enough interest, the task force  hopes to  work with the city to explore establishing a pilot program.
