Food scraps up 10,000 lbs./month at one transfer station since law took effect - Chester Telegraph

A new food scrap collection law and the arrival of many new residents and second-home owners has the food scrap storage totes too heavy to transport from a Londonderry transfer station.

“Food scraps totaled approximately 6,700 pounds in both June and July, Fishman said, but jumped to more than 16,600 pounds in August. Now, the storage totes previously used by the Transfer Station have become too heavy for Casella to transport, requiring smaller containers and more frequent service. At the same time, the region has seen an influx of new residents and new second-homeowners that real estate agents attribute to the Covid-19 pandemic."
