FRAMINGHAM – The organization Energize Framingham will hold a table to farm coffee and dessert on Sunday, October 16, to discuss the benefits of organic recycling,

“We believe, as members and leaders of our shared Framingham community, we can make small changes to our daily habits to make a difference. A small group of committed citizens and members of Energize Framingham have started a project, “Table to Farm,” to expand curbside organic recycling. When we get 8 or more people to sign up for updates from Black Earth Compost’s organic recycling service, it will drop the overall cost/neighbor for Black Earth Compost (BEC) service by 30%. Signing up is of no cost to you,” said organizers.

Organic Recycling – What is it? How to get started?
Why is organic recycling so important? Small steps can have a big impact.
Our climate crisis has many elements, including our use of landfills. They take away natural wildlife habitats, pollute water sources and, most importantly, they generate high levels of methane gas and carbon dioxide. In addition to being detrimental to air quality, we are quickly running out of landfill space. Currently all landfills used by Massachusetts cities and towns are facing closure by 2030 according to current estimates.
· Reduces the amount of trash sent to landfills
· Reduces dangerous gases produced by rotting trash
· Can be converted to fertilizer which creates beneficial compost that sequesters CO2, while promoting healthy plant growth, and acting as a natural water filter
“We are working with Black Earth Compost to increase accessible composting in Framingham. Curbside composting can be done by any household and allows a greater range of waste to be composted than in traditional backyard composting,” said organizers.
