How Does it Work
Food Scraps are a resource, not a waste! By participating in the Food Scrap Drop-off program, your food scraps and non-recyclable paper products are recycled into compost.
Sign up today using the link. Beginning May 16th you will need an access code to unlock the containers.
Collect food scraps while preparing meals, scraping plates and cleaning spoiled food out of the refrigerator. Include paper towels, napkins, paper coffee filters and coffee grounds. See below for the list of compostable items. It all adds up!
