F&M Compost Co-Op

"A Franklin & Marshall College compost initiative has evolved into a co-op saving the City of Lancaster $5,215 per year – all while diverting 16,638 pounds of food waste from the solid-waste stream each month."

"Residents began composting in April 2021, with three bin locations in the city of Lancaster (Musser Park, Lancaster Recycling Drop-Off Center, and Culliton Park). Bins have since been added at Linear Park and Buchanan Park, adjacent to F&M.

The program has grown to 250 households. Membership in LCC is free and open to the public; members are required to attend a brief orientation session and participate in occasional compost maintenance workdays. "
