Thanks to 1A/Strong Future, Summit County’s food scrap program is now FREE to residents!
Collecting food scraps is an easy and important step in reducing our waste and reduce our carbon pollution. We can all do it! Even better, the compost generated from the process creates a valuable amendment to nourish our soil.
How to get started:
Register for the program and receive a code to access the drop-off food scrap bins at the Frisco or Breckenridge Recycling Center. This code is required to open the bear-proof bins and will change periodically to reduce contamination. You will be notified via email regarding code or program updates.
Buy Local Compost
You can purchase locally made compost from the Summit County Resource Allocation Park at the landfill near Keystone. The compost is created with food waste, biosolids and wood chips from mountain pine beetle kill – one solution to deal with a substantial amount of dead trees. This compost meets all STA Class III certifications.
