Join the Food Waste Collection Pilot Program!

The launch of this new program will offer residents the opportunity to drop off their food scraps for composting. EGSD is working in partnership with local community gardens in Tucson.  

Information Sessions will be held for residents to learn about the program and receive a kitchen compost pail that can be used to collect food scraps from their homes. 

Here’s how to get involved:

  1. Sign up for a 30-minute information session to learn the basics
  2. Complete the training and receive a free home kitchen compost pail to collect food scraps
  3. Receive the code to access the container lock at drop off sites
  4. Drop off food scraps in container at a City collection site 

EGSD will collect the food waste from the gardens and use it at the composting facility at the Los Reales Sustainability Campus. Your actions help to improve air quality, create landfill space, and decrease food waste.
