Food Scraps Program

Thanks for taking the time to view this page.

Please know the rules of the Food Scraps Program before participating.

Contaminating the Food Scraps bins with unacceptable items places them at risk of being diverted to the landfill and negating the efforts of all other residents.

If you are unsure of whether an item can go in the Food Scraps Bin please toss it in the garbage.

NO PLASTICS of any kind and that includes “Compostable” and “Biodegradable” bags.

 

These items are also NOT acceptable.
