Food waste makes up more than 20% of the municipal waste stream. Learn how you can help the environment by participating in our Food Scraps program, composting at home, or signing up for a commercial composting service.

Recycling is a great way to keep items out of incinerators and landfill, while transforming the material into other products. However, recycling should be the last resort. Plus, recycling isn’t easy. Find out how to recycle properly and learn strategies to reduce and reuse.

Planet New Canaan is focused on initiatives that will improve New Canaan’s sustainability and deliver significant progress in reducing waste. On the horizon: Planet New Canaan’s Swap Shop, waste reduction in our schools, and increased participation in current programs.

New Canaan residents can make small changes that have a collective large impact on our town’s sustainability. Explore some ideas of what you can do at home to reduce your carbon footprint.
