Food Waste Pickup

In some communities, our food waste service helps residents turn kitchen leftovers into valuable, nutrient-rich compost that replenishes the soil, or into renewable energy.

It’s as simple and convenient as using our collection and recycling services, available to growing numbers of communities we serve. Our food waste program accepts many kinds of biodegradable foodstuffs, including vegetables,fruits, eggshells and other items that vary by community. Participants simply collect their kitchen waste in a pail during the week. Then, on collection day, they follow instructions specific to their program. By working together to repurpose food waste, we can make a tremendous impact for the better on the environment we all share.
