Food Scrap Recycling is a Win for Scarsdale

I just want to say thank you to the team that makes this all happen. I am a late comer to composting and the Scarsdale program made it super easy for us. We quickly became very dedicated to it and between our efforts to recycle and compost, our trash bags are virtually nothing every week.

It is a program that I admire about Scarsdale very much and often remark that the Scarsdale dump is a town treasure!

Just wanted to share my gratitude. I read recently that composting was at the top of the list of the best things we can do for the environment and I am so happy that Scarsdale made it so easy for us to get on the wagon.

Thank you!
