Come, Post Your Compost!
~ Aiming to educate & encourage TN residents to compost in their backyards ~
You can participate in our campaign to divert 60 tons of food waste from TN landfills by December 2019!
Click on your county below to get started:
Through our Come, Post your Compost program, the Tennessee Environmental Council will serve as a central resource for food waste reduction across Tennessee by helping residents keep tons of food and yard waste out of our landfills and put it back into our community’s hands and gardens. Here we provide county-specific food recovery resources (local food banks and gleaning services) as well as information on how to backyard-compost. We hope to engage at least 1,000 Tennessee residents, throughout all 95 counties, in diverting 60 tons of food and yard waste from Tennessee’s landfills by December 2019. We’ll help you get started by offering compost supplies upon registration, and we will reward participants at random and hold inter-county compost competitions. Help us create a community of dedicated composters!
