FOOD SCRAP FAQs

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

1. COLLECT your food scraps in a countertop pail. Although not required, we recommend lining your pail with a compostable bag- please no plastic bags. See FAQs for more information on compostable bags.

2. TRANSFER your full countertop pail into the larger 6-gallon pail (usually about 3-4 times per week). Therefore, it is suggested that residents utilize the larger storage bin for weekly collection of food scraps. This larger bin can also be used for transportation of food scraps to the Drop-Off Site. Anything that holds around 5-6 gallons and has a lid will work. It is recommended that food storage bins be kept indoors--either in the house or in a garage.

3. BRING your transportation bin to the food drop off site and empty into the large green toters.

Drop-Off Location and Hours: The Food Scrap Recycling Drop-Off Site is accessible 7 days a week in Lot 7 behind Village Hall (195 Sparks Avenue) north of the DPW Yard. Enter on Sparks Avenue, then follow signs to the back northwest corner of the lot. Look for the Residential Food Scrap Recycling sign and large green toters!
