RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Curbside Compost provides Ridgefield households with a pick-up service to dispose of food leftovers.
In an effort to improve environmental sustainability, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lower the amount of organics sent to waste-to-energy plants and landfills, benefit soil and address how households and businesses are disposing food leftovers, town residents Nicholas and Erica Skeadas started the company.
Curbside Compost provides clean containers, which are replaced after each pick-up. Items picked up include meat, fish, bones, egg shells, coffee grounds, vegetables, table scraps and leftovers from food preparation.
The natural process of decomposition of food into compost takes approximately three and a half months.
The company delivers finished compost as requested by its customers, which they can then mix into soil to nourish plants and gardens.
