September 18, 2022 marked the 5th anniversary of Larchmont-Mamaroneck’s food scrap recycling program. The Larchmont-Mamaroneck Joint Sanitation Commission has collected an estimated 350 tons of food scraps from residents of the Town of Mamaroneck and Village of Larchmont which have been turned into climate-friendly compost since the program started in 2017. To put that into perspective, a Boeing 747 weighs 300 tons! In honor of this milestone, Mark Kramer (pictured below, center), on behalf of the Town of Mamaroneck Sustainability Collaborative, brought Sanitation Foreman Frank Giordano (right) and Deputy Foreman Carlos Ortiz (left) a tray of brownies to celebrate with sanitation staff. Notice, there are no brownies in the photo…the environmentally conscious men ate all of the brownies with not a food scrap to be found!
