We have a new food scrap drop-off location open in the southern part of the City!
Instead of putting food scraps in the trash, City residents can drop them off for free 24/7 at the City’s Department of Public Works (9217 51st Avenue) and the Old Town Playground/Community Garden (7504 Columbia Avenue).
The new drop-off location is in our Old Town neighborhood on Columbia Avenue near the Old Town Playground, between Norwich Road and College Avenue.
Five-gallon food scrap buckets are still available at the Department of Public Works. Pick up during regular business hours (Mon-Fri 7:30 am to 4:00 pm). The buckets are useful to transport collected food scraps to the drop off location.
