Starting next Monday,  instead of throwing food scraps into the trash, collect and bring them to a food waste recycling location nearby. Here are a few locations the City will accept your food waste.

  • The Department of Public Works at 9217 51st Avenue
  • Hollywood & Downtown Farmers Markets (Markets start on May 4th)
  • Hollywood Shopping Center & City Hall

The City will be piloting this exciting new food scrap drop-off program to reduce organic material sent to the landfill!

The first 50 residents to visit the Department of Public Works during regular business hours (starting April 1) can pick up a free 5-gallon container for their food scraps!

Please check this video where our Director of Department of Public Works Robert Marsili and the Sustainability Coordinator Janet McCaslin talk about how this program will work.
