Committed to being a good neighbor and good steward of the earth, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) has partnered with Scott County to offer a free residential food waste drop-off program for county residents. By collecting and composting food scraps from your kitchen, you can reduce greenhouse gases and help create nutrient-rich soil amendments. Do your part to be more environmentally friendly, starting with organics recycling at home. Together we can keep organics out of the trash—and put this waste to better use!
- Sign Up
Scott County residents must register for the Household Organics Recycling Program.
- Start Collecting
- Drop Off
A readily accessible, enclosed dumpster will be available for program participants during regular business hours at the SMSC Organics Recycling Facility. To drop off, simply check in with the scale attendant, show your participant card, head over to the designated dumpster, and ditch your scraps.
It’s that easy! Continue collecting and recycling to your heart’s content, and encourage fellow Scott County residents to do their part to keep organics out of the trash.
