DPW Celebrates Earth Month, Reopens Food Waste Drop-Off Locations
Free Kitchen Compost Caddies will be Given Away to the First 50 Participants at Each Drop-Off Location
(WASHINGTON, DC) In honor of Earth Month, the Department of Public Works (DPW) is pleased to announce the reopening of food waste drop-off’s throughout the city, and an array of other services. On Earth Day weekend (April 21-22), DPW will be giving away kitchen caddies to the first 50 participants at each open drop-off location to help residents compost their food waste.
“Helping residents recycle and compost are priorities for DPW year-round as we work toward a cleaner and greener DC,” said DPW Director Christopher Shorter. “This Earth Day and throughout April, I encourage residents to familiarize themselves with the services DPW offers, and consider how they can fully utilize our city’s programs to be good environmental stewards.”
Mayor Bowser kicked off DPW’s first citywide Food Waste Drop-Off program
on Earth Day 2017. Through the free service, residents are able to drop-off food waste at designated farmers markets in all eight city wards. The food waste collected at these drop-off locations is composted locally at District community composting sites and at the Prince George’s County Organics Compost facility.
As of April 1, the Food Waste Drop-Off program had collected nearly 150,000 pounds of organics from more than 20,000 participants in all eight wards over the last year.
Residents are encouraged to drop off the following types of food items: fruit and vegetable scraps; breads, grains, cereals, rice and pasta; coffee grounds, coffee filters and tea bags; egg shells; household flowers; and nutshells. Dairy, meat and fish items are not accepted.
Coming Attractions for April 2018 include:
