Ridgefield is joining Newtown in offering an organics collection program through the Housatonic Resources Recovery Authority. The first of its kind program in the state is a collaboration with the Newtown Transfer Station and the Ridgefield Recycling Center.
There are kickoff events being held tomorrow at those locations to present information about the program and to answer questions from residents.
Ridgefield and Newtown residents do have to sign up for the program and will receive compostable bags, educational material and a carry container. There is a small fee associated with the program.
