MakinGreen is the first food recycling program of its kind in CT. It will operate out of the ROOTS Mobile Market and New Britain’s Downtown Farmers’ Market, where participants can put a $10 deposit on a home food scrap collection unit from ROOTS, and will be supplied with instructions on the types of food waste that can be collected for composting. Once full, containers can be returned to any mobile market location for collection. For every fully returned unit, participants will receive $5 in Bee Bucks tokens from ROOTS, which are redeemable at downtown market vendors or ROOTS mobile market sites.
ROOTS aims to enroll 50 participants in the recycling program, with an anticipated goal of diverting one ton of food waste from local landfills in its first year of operation.
