Starting in January 2018, The Town of Greenburgh, in partnership with the Greenburgh Nature Center, launched the largest residential food scrap recycling program (PDF) in Westchester County.


With the launch of the Town of Greenburgh program, the population of Westchester residents with access to a food scrap drop-off site will nearly triple. Greenburgh will be following in the footsteps of Scarsdale, Larchmont-Mamaroneck, and Bedford, whose programs serve approximately 70,000 Westchester residents in total.


As of January 17th, Anthony F Veteran Park in Hartsdale will have a drop-off site open daily from 8am-8pm to collect food scraps from the 135,000 residents of the Town of Greenburgh and its villages.
