The Town of Fairfield is starting a new food waste program. Residents with a valid sticker can drop off their food waste at no charge to the Town Transfer Station beginning October 17. Please stop at the scale house for a ticket.
Food waste must be placed in a BPI certified compostable bag. These bags can be purchased online as well as several local grocery stores.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Acceptable materials for drop off composting:
- Fruit scraps and peels
- Vegetable scraps
- Coffee grounds/filters
- Tea bags
- Egg shells
- Meat and poultry, including bones
- Dairy products
- Fish scraps, including shellfish and bones
- Bread, pasta and grains
- No liquids, no packaging
Compost all of your food scraps and divert roughly 20% of your waste into useful soil enriching compost.
