Food Scraps Monterey City Disposal Service and the City of Monterey would like to introduce you to the commercial Food Scrap Collection Program. The purpose of this program is to make it simple and convenient to participate in composting by adding food scrap collection to your existing commercial waste collection service. Much like with mixed recyclables, the food scrap collection program will allow you to add an additional container(s) for separating food scraps from other types of waste.

Our goal, in partnership with the Monterey Regional Waste Management District and the Offset Project, is to develop the program into a valuable service that reduces landfill disposal, increases city-wide recycling rates, and produces a valuable compostable material which generates electricity during the breakdown process (from captured methane).
