Residents Scoop Mulch on Compost Give Back Day

compostScarsdale’s Free Compost Give Back Day was once again a success this year, as hundreds of residents came out on May 4 to take free high-quality compost which came from Scarsdale’s very own food scraps!

The annual day has become a highlight of the year for many Scarsdale residents. The Scarsdale Conservation Advisory Council runs the event in partnership with Scarsdale’s Department of Public Works, and gives out the compost as a thank you to residents who are participating in the Scarsdale Food Scrap Recycling Program. Residents who are not in the program can also take free compost, and are encouraged to sign up and become food scrappers!

Over 3 million pounds of food scraps have been recycled by Scarsdale residents since the beginning of the program in January 2017!

If you are not already, please join Scarsdale’s Food Scrap Recycling Program – it’s easy and results in a meaningful reduction to the waste stream, which results in less trash incineration. Email composting@scarsdale.com with any questions or to sign up!
