Pilot Program Participation:>
The FoodCycler program, which has gained recognition and success in Dysart et al. and Carleton Place, started providing municipal programs in 2020, now with 78 municipalities signed up to participate. Many of these programs were funded in part by a grant from the Impact Canada Food Waste Reduction Challenge.
For the Municipality of Centre Hastings to participate in this subsidized pilot program, we need 100 residents willing to:
- purchase a FoodCycler unit at a cost of $150 or $300
- track the number of cycles over an 12-week period
- complete a survey at the end of the 12-week period
With the condition that 100 residents commit to participate, and pending the confirmation of the program's subsidized funding, the program will launch in the Fall of 2023. View the Subsidy Model showing the breakdown of costs and savings.
