Community Compost

Coming Soon!

Starting this summer, Town of Bedford residents may dispose of organic food waste at the Town Recycling Center on Railroad Ave in Bedford Hills on Saturdays 8am-3pm. Sign up to participate!

Community Compost will accept more than your average backyard compost pile. You can bring meat, chicken, fish, bones, dairy products, soiled napkins/paper towels, tea bags, and all food scraps. Click here for the list of Acceptable/Unacceptable Items. Click here for FAQs.

Program participants sign up and pay a one-time, nonrefundable fee of $25. They receive training and a compost kit with two buckets that will make it easy:

  • A small bucket (1.6 gal) for inside your kitchen (fits under your kitchen sink)
  • A larger bucket (6 gal) with a sealable lid to leave in your garage or outside that you transport to and empty at the Recycling Center.

Sign up for Community Compost!

Sign up here and we will follow up with you when the program is ready to launch – Summer 2017! We will notify you when the program starts so you can pay the fee and pick up your Compost Kit.

Volunteer with us

The Waste and Recycling Task Force would love to have help from volunteers to get the word out about this  program. Once the program launches, we will need volunteers at the Recycling Center on Saturday mornings  to help with community outreach, education, and training.  If you would like to be a part of this effort to get Bedford composting, let us know!
