The City of Flagstaff is excited to launch a free and convenient food scraps drop-off for Flagstaff residents. This pilot program seeks to advance the City's Rethink Waste Plan and Carbon Neutrality goals.
Self-Service Drop-off Stations
How does it work?
Starting October 25th 2021, community members will be able to bring acceptable materials (see below) to either of two drop-off stations at any time during the week after taking a short online survey to educate participants and deter contamination of unacceptable materials. Stations are serviced on a bi-monthly basis by compost experts in town who weigh, sort, and transport materials to several small-scale farms in Northern Arizona.
Hal Jensen Recreation Center: 2403 N Izabel St
Flagstaff CSA & Local Market: 116 W Cottage Ave
Food waste and other accepted materials may NOT be left around the containers. For this program to function properly, we must work together to keep these drop-off areas clean.
From July-October 2021 community members were able to drop off food scraps and other acceptable materials (see below) at two participating booth locations, the Market of Dreams and Flagstaff Community Market on a weekly basis.
Booth locations were staffed by compost experts to educate participants and weigh, sort, and transport materials to several small-scale farms in Northern Arizona.
Locations (Not currently available)
Market of Dreams, Saturdays 10am-2pm
Flagstaff Community Market, Sundays 8am-12pm
