Bloomington residents also have the great opportunity to sign up for composting curbside pickup through Green Camino Compost. Participation in this program gets you buckets and bags for compost, instruction guides, and more. Instead of throwing food scraps and many other products (even cotton balls!) away, you can reduce your at-home-waste and help the recovery of organic waste through composting.
There are a lot of ways to stay sanitary but stay green during this time, too. Stay safe and practice social distancing…we at the MCSWCD are thinking of you!
