Composting Pilot Program

Composting Recycling Sustainability

The Village of Riverside and Flood Bros Disposal Co. have partnered with the goal of decreasing the amount of organic refuse sent to landfills.  Together we are offering a food scrap composting pilot program to residents throughout the Village.  Residents who enroll in this program will receive a wheeled cart for organics that is comparable in volume to three (3) bags or containers of yard waste collected.  Subscribers to this program who use the organics cart will be allowed to mix food scraps and approved yard waste materials.


The program is available to all single-family residences. Organics carts will be delivered shortly to all who enroll.  The program will coincide with the yard waste seasonal collection program (Through November 30th).  Organics pick-ups will take place on the normal Thursday collection day.  Return the Enrollment Form to register for the program.  Please be sure to include your email address for monthly program updates, educational seminars and event information.


What are the benefits of Composting?

· Materials will be diverted from landfills and Flood Brothers will make up to 20 yards of compost available to participating residents.

· Since yard waste and food scraps are high emitters of methane, a gas more potent than carbon dioxide, composting these materials reduces air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Please click on the Enrollment Form link for complete details on the program.
