Scrap It! Curbside
Pilot Program for Curbside Food Waste
The City of Buffalo pilot food scrap curbside collection program is funded with a grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. This project period is one year. After the one-year period, the City will evaluate the feasibility of continuing the program. Participation in this pilot program is not a guarantee of the program continuing or continuing as a no-fee service.
The City is utilizing a private contractor to collect and process the food scraps. Farmers Pirates Compost, LLC will collect weekly food scrap totes on your regularly scheduled garbage day.
