How to drop off food scraps

Food scrap drop-off is allowed during business hours only. If you store your food scraps in a plastic bag, please dump them out of the bag and dispose of the bag separately. We do not accept plastic of any kind in our drop-off program. 

Up to 30 gallons

Use the green food scrap dumpster outside of our office. Please note that occasionally the dumpster fills up and we need to dump it.  If you do not see the green food scrap dumpster, there are instructions by the food scrap sign to dump in a large bucket loader bucket. 

30+ gallons

Please check in with us before dumping. The office is currently closed so please follow the contact instructions on the signs located by the office.
