Compost Give Back Day 2021

In celebration of a successful first year of its food scrap recycling program, the Town of Ossining held a Compost Give Back Day on June 4 and 5 at Cedar Lane Park. Dozens of residents were greeted by Food Scraps Program Coordinator Marcus DaSilva and Green Ossining volunteers who helped fill buckets with free, nutrient-rich compost as a thank you for participating in the program. All food scraps collected in the Town are now composted locally at Sustainable Materials Management, Inc. in Cortlandt Manor which turns discarded food scraps into a safe and nutritious soil amendment for gardens, landscaping, and agricultural use.
