Food Scrap Drop-Off

What is Composting?

Composting is a natural process that recycles organic materials, such as food scraps and yard trimmings, into a nutrient-rich soil amendment. Composting not only keeps organic material out of the landfill, but also replenishes soil health, reduces fertilizer use, and supports water retention.

Composting food and organic waste can divert over 30% of your household waste stream from landfills, which is the third largest source of methane emissions.
