Why separate your food scraps?

Food Scraps are the single largest component in the Municipal Solid Waste stream (MSW). Decomposition of Food Scraps in a landfill produces methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more damaging than CO2. Food Scraps are valuable materials that if properly collected and composted can help reduce pollution and improve overall quality of life.

How to participate in the food scrap program?

Interested parties will complete an online registration along with answering a few basic questions regarding compliance.  Once submitted, participates will be selected through a rolling lottery system.  Participation is voluntary.  

Once selected, it's easy!  

  • COLLECT your food scraps in a reusable container / tub / bucket and then continue to reuse the container.  You can store this container in the refrigerator or freezer until it's full of food scraps.   
  • DROP OFF your food scraps to your selected site.
