waste reduction committee

Contact Cynthia Kanner – cwkannerenvirodefmc@gmail.com if interested in joining the work of this committee.

NEXT MEETING: DECEMBER 11 at Scorched Earth, 7pm.

Plastic waste

Join the effort on projects and programs in our community that will bring about change while breaking the “plastic habit!” We are working to reduce the use of staws, plastic water bottles and plastic bags.


Food waste

Food waste is one of the largest contributors to our landfills and there is a better destination for this biodegradable material in the form of COMPOST, The Defenders is beginning the process of exploring the possibility of a county composting program and salutes towns in our county that provide curbside composting through their waste hauler contracts.

Preserve. Protect. Educate. Since 1970
