Food Scraps Pickup Program

You’ll soon have a new way to recycle food scraps from home! Ramsey and Washington counties are working together to bring a food scraps pickup service to all residents, with rollout happening in phases throughout 2023

This new program is part of a larger system for managing food scraps. County food scraps drop-off sites will remain in operation, and some people may prefer to compost food scraps in their backyards. Do what works best for you! 

Stay tuned for updates. Meanwhile, find more information by visiting the Ramsey/Washington Recycling & Energy website or calling 651-661-9393.
