462 Halsey accepts biodegradable organic waste to be composted on site!
From April to October, we are open for drop-offs Monday – Friday : 8am to dusk; Saturdays, 9am to 8pm and Sunday, 9am to 6pm. From November to March, we are open on Saturdays between 10am to 3pm ONLY.
Never leave food scraps at the gate! It will both attract rats AND we could get ticketed by the city!
ATTENTION: the procedure for dropping off food waste has changed. Please follow the steps listed below.
1. Empty the your food scraps into one of the metal cans. DO NOT LEAVE PLASTIC BAGS IN THE CANS.
2. Cover your food scraps with the sawdust provided.
3. If you have emptied a plastic bag, you can dispose of it in the plastic bucket labeled for plastic bags.
Remember, NEVER put anything in the compost bins yourself! We keep records of how much food waste we divert from the waste stream so please leave your scraps to be weighed before they are added to one of the bins.
Unsure of what can or can’t be composted?
We accept yard waste [dead leaves, grass clippings, etc.] but please CONTACT US at email@example.com before dropping these materials off!
