What are options for recycling food waste if living in a condo (with zero cost)?
Well, Brucks2, for zero cost (actually a net gain) my best advice is to have less food waste. Only buy what you need. Save scraps in the freezer to make vegetable broth. Eat your leftovers – you can even get creative with them!
For a small investment, you can have your own composter. I am a renter with a small yard, so I currently compost outside in a plastic storage tub. When I lived in a condo, I had a lot of fun composting with worms .
There are even small countertop composting buckets, though I have never used one and can’t speak to how well they work.
If DIY composting isn’t your thing, you can hire Earth Mama Compost for $20 a month.
And remember to be engaged in discussions about reducing, reusing and recycling that are happening right now! Follow the Indiana Food Scrap Initiative
