Twenty-three Upper Valley communities in New Hampshire can now dispose food scraps at the Lebanon landfill as part of a new composting program, which is aimed at reducing waste and extending the landfill’s life span.

For $15, residents can drop off a five-gallon bucket of food scraps every week for the year.
