MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Berkeley County is giving residents an opportunity to recycle food as well as paper, aluminum and glass.

The Berkeley County Solid Waste Authority’s food waste collection program is part of a 12-month composting pilot initiative funded by a $7,400 federal grant.

Media outlets report that the authority is encouraging residents, businesses, church groups, restaurants and others to participate in the program.

Food waste that will be accepted includes meat, poultry, fish, table scraps, bread, coffee grounds and tea bags.
