Food Scrap Recycling
Food scraps account for over 22% of Connecticut’s municipal solid waste.
This program is organized by the Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board and Waste Free Greenwich, in partnership with the Town’s Department of Public Works, the Conservation Commission and Greenwich Green & Clean.
This drop-off program is voluntary and available to all residents.
Food scraps are collected at home, brought to a designated location at Holly Hill and then hauled to a commercial composting facility to be turned into nutrient-rich compost.
All food, including meat and dairy, tea bags, cut flowers and paper towels are accepted.
Greenwich Green & Clean is participating in this important waste reduction program by offering starter kits containing collection bins, compostable bags and an easy to follow guide for $20.
