Food waste for composting

Compostable materials

Recycle your food scraps, help the air and soil

As much as 40% of food is wasted and sent to landfills, where it produces methane, a gas that is 84 times worse for the environment than carbon dioxide. In contrast, nothing is wasted in nature--everything becomes food for something else. Composting food waste prevents it from releasing methane gas and safely returns its rich nutrients back to the soil.

We compost all food and yard waste, and accept drop-offs at our Balls Ford Road location. If you're a Prince William County resident, you can drop off your composting material for free!
