**UPDATE 12/5/14: Project Oscar will continue this winter in the North End and East Boston!**
Oscar is more than a green grouch who lives on Sesame Street—the name has become synonymous with the community compost program in the North End and East Boston. Today, Mayor Walsh visited East Boston to learn about Project Oscar. He even brought some of his own food scraps!
The Mayor met with members of the East Boston community who have been active in using Project Oscar. The residents gave him a demonstration and provided valuable feedback. Since September, over 200 residents of the North End and East Boston have been participating in the program, dropping off their food scraps at keypad locked bins in their neighborhoods. The Mayor is excited about the pilot and seeing it grow beyond it's scheduled end date of November 30, but we need your feedback.
Program participants can tell us what you think via this survey. If you didn't participate, there is still time to sign up. Click here to participate in the North End program, and here for the East Boston program.
Composting has many environmental benefits, and can get us one step closer our climate and waste reduction goals. So join the conversation and give us your feedback!
