Food Scrap Drop Off Program
Since 2018, the Village of Irvington has participated in Greenburgh’s food scrap recycling program through an all-volunteer effort.
Where Can I Take My Food Scraps?
Which Food Scraps Are Accepted?
All food scraps, including but not limited to meat, bones, dairy, fish, fruit, vegetables, bread, pasta, cooked food, leftover food, pizza box etc. will be accepted. The collected food scraps will then be transferred to a commercial composting facility to be recycled into nutrient-rich compost.
Get Your Compost Storage Kit.
Complete compost storage kits (kitchen counter caddie, roll of plant-based liner bags, and a larger locking bulk transporter) are available for $20 in the Village Administrator’s office in Village Hall, or sometimes at the GPTF table during Farmers Market hours (please bring cash or check).
Learn more about Composting here.
Please use only compostable bags (not plastic or “bio-degradable” bags) for your scraps. Additional bags are available at the GPTF’s Farmer’s Market table, Irvington Village Hall, or at Anthony F Veteran Park in Hartsdale (Greenburgh). Cost is $2 for a roll of 25 bags.
Un-bagged food scraps will also be accepted at the drop off.
To reduce odors, we recommend saving meat, fish, and bone leftovers in your freezer until ready to transfer to the Farmers Market.
Please - no plastic bags, rubber bands, twist ties or wires. Only food scraps, paper towel and napkins.
