The Illinois Food Scrap Composting Challenges and Solutions Forum for Northwest Illinois will be held in DuPage County at Cantigny Park on the morning of Tuesday, September 16. This will be the second of five statewide forums in Illinois. We are asking businesses that generate lots of food scraps (restaurants, hotels, hospitals and more), haulers, compost facilities, and users of finished compost (landscapers, municipal governments, etc.) to be a part of setting the direction for food scrap composting in Illinois.
Join composting experts at Cantigny Park in Wheaton. There will be presentations with research on policies, programs, and best practices across the country that promote food scrap composting across sectors and highlights on current initiatives in the Chicago metro area. Breakout groups will also be created to discuss current barriers and challenges related to advancing food scrap composting in Illinois, and recommendations for moving forward.
