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. See below for a complete list.

How it works

Program participants sign up and pay a one-time, nonrefundable fee of $25. You 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.
