New Albany Launches Food Composting Program

The City of New Albany launched a food composting program this spring giving residents and businesses the opportunity to collect compostable food waste and drop it off at any of the following compost drop-off locations. The designated sites include the Public Service building, 7800 Bevelhymer Road; Village Hall, 99 W. Main Street; or the Temple Beth Shalom/All Saints Episcopal Church parking lot, 5089 Johnstown Road. Composting services are provided by GoZERO.

Use of city-provided compost buckets is not required to collect food waste, but the first 200 households or businesses that sign up will receive a free 5-gallon compost bucket and compostable liner. Participants can also use their own plastic or glass food storage containers with snap close lids. Food waste is the largest portion of the waste stream and accounts for 15% of all material in the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill. Every day, central Ohio residents and businesses throw out a million pounds of food. Together, we can save more than food and make a difference for our community. Sign up today!
