As a reminder, the City of Asheville, in partnership with Buncombe County and Natural Resource Defense Council’s Food Matters program, launched a pilot food scrap drop-off program earlier this year. Two food scraps drop-off sites are open at Stephens-Lee Recreation Center and Buncombe County Landfill Convenience Center. It’s a great way to divert unused food from our landfill.
