Food Scrap Drop-Off Sign Up Form

All Chicago residents can now compost their household food scraps for FREE.

If you would like to participate, please:

By signing up, you will receive program updates by email (such as the opening of new drop-off locations that may be closer to your home, changes in access hours, changes in accepted/not accepted materials, and more).

 I watched the online training video. *

 I agree to follow the Food Scrap Drop-Off Program guidelines, including the following: *
  • I will place only food scraps from the Accepted Materials list into the green carts provided (no bags or other non-food materials).
  • If I opt to carry my food scraps in a bag, I will dispose of the bag in the black garbage cart provided.
  • I will not leave any materials outside of the carts, even if the carts are full.
  • I will report full carts and any other issues to the Department of Streets and Sanitation at
