Since the start of market season, Charlottesville has been a piloting an ad hoc composting program. The program collects compostable material from anyone attending the Farmers Market downtown. Anyone participating gets this service for free as well as the bags necessary to collect the compost. With help from the Department of Public Works, we’re pasting the data from each compost collection. You can interpret it how you will, but from our view, the program has been a success and the council should already be considering ways to expand it (the grant funding the program expires in September).
We thank the city for making this data transparent and open, allowing us to share it with you.
You can now have dynamic access to the compost data from our JSON feed.
