Food Waste  

I am so thankful Dubuque has started a food scrap collection program. I can't believe it is the first of it's kind in the state. Especially in regards to households, I really hope more people utilize this program. To do the right thing for only a dollar a month was a no-brainer. I really hope more businesses in the community take advantage of the program too. I know it might cost them more than taking it to the landfill, but I know I would be more willing to spend money at a place that composts compared to a venue that didn't. I also think Dubuque needs to a better job in food recovery. Composting is great, but we have hungry people living in Dubuque. We need to develop ways to get uneaten food to be eaten instead of it being landfilled food. Let's make it happen DARN3.
