Food waste composting program at the Municipal Transfer Station

The program offers residents with a disposal permit the option of bringing food scraps and other perishable items to the Transfer Station. Green Bucket Compost collects the food waste once a week, and then the material is converted into renewable energy at a food waste recycling plant. The six-month pilot program began in June 2022 and was made permanent in January 2023.
