Supporting Member and Sustaining Partner List

The Illinois Food Scrap Coalition is a group of solid waste agencies, counties, and community and government organizations dedicated to advancing food scrap composting in Illinois through program implementation, policy, and advocacy. Since forming in 2012, IFSC has grown substantially and our work has expanded to the point where we need administrative support. In order to accomplish our initiatives and take food scrap composting to the next level in Illinois, we have moved to a dues paying membership, as of 2016. Join your fellow stakeholders in becoming a member or sustaining partner of IFSC!

Please like the IFSC Facebook page. Thank you for your support.
