Residential Food Scraps Drop-off

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.

Updated Residential Food Scraps Drop off

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.

Locations

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.
