The Food Scrap Recycling Kit includes a countertop pail, transfer bin, roll of compostable liners and an instructional guide.
Village Hall will soon be providing kits that contain everything you need. The kit will be sold to residents for the “at cost” price of $25. You can sign up for the program now and pick up and pay for the kit later--either during our launch event or in Village Hall during regular business hours.
Additional countertop pail liner bags can be purchased at $2 per roll of 25 bags. On average, a family of four will use 3-4 bags per week. Larger bags to line the transfer bin are also available at $5 per roll of 25 bags. These bags are not necessary since all your scraps will already be in smaller liner bags, but you may find them convenient.
You can also use your own bins and compostable liner bags for this program, however, liner bags MUST be certified compostable. Biodegradable is not accepted. Look for the BPI certified compostable logo!
Residents can drop off food scraps at the designated drop off site at Palumbo Place behind Village Hall. Enter and leave via Midland Avenue. Once on Palumbo, please take a right into the parking lot, swing around to the left to drop off your food scraps, and continue left to exit Palumbo. You'll see the large Food Scrap Recycling sign and bright green drop off bins!
