Frequently asked questions about the Food Waste Program
How should food be packaged?
Residents can bring their food waste either loose or in clear plastic bags and deposit it in the specially marked food waste recycling bin at the Westfield Conservation Center.
Do I need a special container from Waste Management or can I use my own container?
No special container is required. You can transport your food waste using any container you find convenient.
When and where in the Conservation Center do I drop off food waste and during what hours?
Residents can drop off food waste anytime the Conservation Center is open. Check the Conservation Center page for current hours.
The food waste bin is located near the recycling area. If you have trouble locating it, just ask one of the members of the Public Works department working at the center.
