May 29 is National Learn About Composting Day!

On March 12, 2018, the New Castle Town Board unanimously authorized a food scrap recycling program for residents! Food scraps are one of the largest components of trash sent to landfills and incinerators. To celebrate National Learn About Composting Day we are launching our New Castle program. You can buy the kits you need to participate starting Tuesday May 29th at Starbucks and DeCicco’s. The kits cost $25 and consist of a kitchen collection bin, a locking transportation bin to take the waste to the Recycling Center and compostable bags for both bins. After the 29th kits will be for sale at the Farmer’s Market, The Recycling Center and at some town events. For more information email
