Green Needham Collaborative, a local environmental organization, is working in cooperation with the Town of Needham, and partners in neighboring communities, to find sustainable and cost-effective ways to keep food waste out of the waste stream. Our initial task is to collect information about how food waste is currently being handled by local food establishments. The goal is to be able to share solutions and identify opportunities to help businesses and institutions reduce the amount of food waste they generate and find better uses for the waste that remains. Green Needham will also be inviting RecyclingWorks, a state-funded business assistance program, to offer a free food waste reduction workshop for area businesses and institutions.
Your participation in this 5-minute survey will help us to find solutions that will ultimately help you. Responses to the survey will not be made public and will be shared only among the citizen volunteers of the Green Needham working group. Data gathered from the survey will be aggregated; individual business will not be identified in the summary of results
