Food Scrap Recycling

Food WasteFood scraps account for over 22% of Connecticut’s municipal solid waste. This pilot 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 will be voluntary and free to all residents. Food scraps will be 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 will be accepted.

GG&C 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. Call 203-531-0006 or email
