The Town of Prescott is partnering with Food Cycle Science to offer a pilot project for the in-home food waste diversion machine, known as the FoodCycler.
To further reduce the amount of organic material going into the landfill, the Town of Prescott is providing FoodCycler units at a subsidized price for residents on a first-come, first-served basis. Your advanced order and payment will reserve a unit. While quantities last. Limit of one (1) unit per household. Registration will be open to residents until May 30, and the FoodCycler units can be picked up mid-June, at a date and time to be determined.
Please note, by registering for the FoodCycler Pilot Project participants agree to track usage for 12 weeks and complete a brief exit survey regarding experience with the program.
