First-time composters wonder about the best way to get their veggie trimmings to the compost collection. Here's our quick guide:
1) Get a storage container. Anything from a 32-ounce yogurt container or plastic bag to a covered pail will do the job. Check out our slideshow for more ideas.
2) Keep it cool. Store scraps in the freezer or fridge to reduce odors at home and at the Greenmarket.
3) Bring it to the market. Stop by the compost tent and empty your container into our receptacle. You can reduce waste by reusing the same container. After you shop you can drop in unwanted carrot tops, corn husks, radish greens, etc before leaving the market. That's it!
