Climate Team Green Tip:
Are You in the Zone?

Do you live in the Wilde Lake or Centennial Lane neighborhoods?

Howard County Department of Public Works is expanding the food scrap collection area in the spring of 2022 (pink area-Zone5)!

Food scraps are transported to the Alpha Ridge landfill for composting. Composting food scraps is a
win-win. It eliminates the methane production that would occur if the food scraps were buried in the landfill and it produces a useful soil amendment. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas. Composting food scraps helps slow down climate change.

Households in Zone 5 will receive a postcard with information on signing up. Participating households will receive a small lidded countertop container and one of 3 sizes of green bins. Sign up and participate!

For more information or to indicate an interest in participating in the program in the future.
