Food Scrap drop-off update

Food Scraps Drop-Off Location
The food scrap drop-off toters are now on Green St: Cross the “H” bridge over the MNR tracks, turn Left (South) and travel along the street past the commuter parking lots. The drop-off is on the right, just before the Losee Park ballfield. (See the MAP HERE.)
Also, we have had some incidents of our carter refusing to pick up any toter that has plastic or other non-compostable trash visible. Please be extra careful to keep your food scraps “clean” and only use labeled-compostable bags that are available for $2/roll at the Library and the Tarrytown Rec Center.
If you happen to see trash in a food scrap toter, we’d appreciate your help by removing it to the nearby trash dumpster. As you can imagine, a toter left un-collected for more than a few days will become a nuisance.

Today, as climate change poses a fundamental threat to our planet, Tarrytown is working to protect our riverfront environment through volunteer actions, policy advancement and programs to reduce carbon emissions. Find out how you can get involved.
