Community Compost

Town of Bedford residents may dispose of organic food waste at the Recycling Center on Railroad Ave in Bedford Hills on Saturdays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 8am-3pm.

How it works

Come to the Bedford 2020 office, pay a one-time, nonrefundable fee of $30 and receive training and a compost kit with two buckets and a starter roll of compostable bags that will make it easy:

A small bucket (1.6 gal) for inside your kitchen (fits under your kitchen sink) to collect food scraps.

A larger bucket (6 gal) with a sealable lid to leave in your garage or outside. Fill this up  with what you collect in the small bin during the week and then use this bin to transport your scraps to the Recycling Center on Saturdays, Tuesdays or Thursdays (8:00 AM Р3:00 PM).  Wash and repeat.

Compostable bag liners are sometimes used in one or both bins by those who want less to clean. Bedford 2020 has some available for $5/roll of 25. You will receive one starter roll to get you started!

Scraps collected at the recycling center will be picked up and taken to an industrial composting facility.
