Food Waste

New Food Waste Recycling Drop-Off Program

In a partnership with Kids That Compost, six large food waste drop-off bins are available at 1525 Goodale Boulevard next to the former Service Facility. Residents can drop off foodstuffs 24 hours a day, seven days a week to any of the lined containers at their convenience. This service is being provided free of charge to residents. KTC Location Final
