Food Scraps (Organics Recycling) Drop-Offs
A great way to reduce waste is to recycle your food scraps! Collect food scraps separately from your trash and take them to a food scraps (organics recycling) collection location. The food scraps will be transported from the collection site to an industrial compost facility where it will break down and become compost. The finished compost is used in gardens, landscaping, and construction projects.
There are 8 food scraps (organics) drop-off sites located in Saint Paul. Some drop-off sites are open 24/7 and some drop-off sites (which are located at the Ramsey County Yard Waste sites) have limited hours. See below for more details.
