Where to Donate My Food Scraps


April 1, 2019

Hi there- Hope this note finds you well. I am looking to drop off my compost at a local farm/place in need - do you know of where I might be able to do this? I do not want to throw away food scraps but I am unable to compost at the moment.


Answer by JZ: Other colleagues may also respond to your question.

Great idea.  I would encourage you to make contact with a local community, church, school garden.

Most of them have a composting setup and would probably gladly take your scraps. This link may be helpful:

ABQ Community Gardens - American Community Garden Association

A collection service is here:  Little Green Bucket Food Scrap Collection

Hope that this is helpful.    Best.   John Zarola,
