Free Food Scraps Drop Off Now at Ashland's Tuesday Market
Updated: Nov 27, 2022
Have you been looking for a way to reduce your food waste? Now you can drop them off at the Ashland Farmers Market on Tuesdays at the Armory 1420 E Main St., Ashland, OR 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The market opens this Tuesday (March 1, 2022) so start saving those carrot peelings.
This is a project of the Ashland Rotary Club, funded by an Ashland Food Coop grant (thanks!)
Rogue Produce will pick up the scraps and take them to a local farmer for composting. This is a great way to enrich our soils and foods, to increase water retention in fields, and reduce methane created when food scraps go into the landfill.
A list of Do's and Don'ts can be found on Rogue Produce's website, but basically, no meat, bones, or seafood, no paper plates or cutlery even if it says compostable. no coconuts. Tea bags, egg shells, and coffee grinds are OK.
