Norfolk County is joining other municipalities across the province in launching its first ever FoodCycler ™ Pilot Program.

In partnership with Food Cycle Science Corporation, residents of Norfolk County will have the opportunity to pilot an in-home food waste diversion solution that will reduce the amount of organics headed to the landfill.

Norfolk County will be offering 150 FoodCycler™ units at a subsidized price for residents to use in their homes for a 12-week period. After the 12-week period, the unit is theirs to keep. These subsidies allow this technology to be more affordable to residents, and the program will provide helpful information as the County begins researching alternative waste management solutions. Two models are available to choose from for either $150 or $300.

Residents must register online on a first-come, first-served basis, with only one unit per household allowed. Registration will open at 12 p.m. on February 26, 2024, for the program, which starts in the spring.
