Norwalk Takes Bold Recycling Step – FOOD COMPOSTING

Residents of Norwalk zip code 06853 (Rowayton) aren bringing their food scraps to the drop off bins located at the back of the Rowayton Community Center, 33 Highland Avenue, every Wednesday from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.  We will all follow distancing rules and use gloves.

This is a pilot program and hopefully will be implemented all over Norwalk.  Details here:  Norwalk Food Scrap Recycling Guide

Our Land Trust has lost a wonderful and dedicated volunteer and good friend.  John Verel, husband of Mary Verel on our Board of Directors, lost his fight against the COVID-19 virus on April 2nd.  We will create a way to honor his dedication to the City of Norwalk and the 6th Taxing District (Rowayton) and we will find a way to share our profound sense of loss.  John Verel
