DCCI is a PFD program that aims to offer educational programs to our community, facilitate collaboration, and provide technical assistance to help reduce food waste going to Delaware landfills. We offer food waste reduction and prevention educational programs and backyard and community composting training programs. Additionally, we implement campus and community composting sites to divert source-separated food-scraps from the landfill, turning it into useable soil.
What is composting, and why should we?
Composting is the controlled process of the decomposition of organic materials. In Delaware, 25% of what we send to the landfill is organic matter. We could instead compost that material, and put those nutrients back into local soils, which will help close the loop on the local food system and improve our carbon footprint by reducing landfill methane emissions.
