Food Scrap Recycling

What is Food Scrap Recycling?

Food Scrap recycling is any waste that comes from a plant or animal and is compostable (or biodegradable) such as food scraps, non-recyclable paper, coffee grounds, etc.

How Can I Recycle This Waste?


Ramsey County residents can recycle their food scrap waste for free at a Ramsey County Yard Waste site. This includes food scraps, non-recyclable paper products, coffee grounds, and more. Stop at the yard waste site or the Township's Administrative Offices for a brochure and free compostable bags to get started. For more information, visit the Ramsey County:  Food Scrap Recycling

You can also recycle your food scraps in your own backyard. Learn more about how to compost your food scrap waste at home on Ramsey County's Backyard Composting Web Page.
