Ad-Hoc Committee on Food Scrap Recycling

Food Scrap Composting

There as been growing interest in food scrap recycling/composting as of late, as evidenced by the successful food scrap program implemented by the Scarsdale School District. As such, on November 9, 2016, the Village Board of Trustees authorized a Village food scrap composting program. The program will allow residents to drop-off their food scarps at the Village Recycling Center at 110 Secor Road. To oversee the start of this program, the Village Board established an Ad-Hoc Committee on Food Scrap Recycling. The Committee's charge for a period of 18 months is as follows:

  1. Coordinate program implementation;
  2. Monitor program success and make recommendations for improvement; and
  3. Provide public program education and outreach to residents.
