The City of Flagstaff is excited to launch a free and convenient weekly food scraps drop-off for Flagstaff residents. This pilot program seeks to advance the City's Rethink Waste Plan and Carbon Neutrality goals.
How does it work?
Through June of 2022, community members will have the opportunity to drop off food scraps and other acceptable materials (see below) at two participating booth locations on a weekly basis. The Market of Dreams accepts materials from 10 am – 2 pm on Saturdays, and the Flagstaff Community Market accepts materials from 8 am – 12 pm on Sundays.
Both booth locations are staffed by compost experts to educate participants and weigh, sort, and transport materials to several small-scale farms in and around Flagstaff. Materials are processed onsite at the farms and incorporated into their soils to support regenerative agriculture, the local food system, and our ecosystems.
