The food scrap drop off program was in pilot stage throughout 2022. We were able to test program logistics at a few select locations and make adjustments as needed for optimum success.
The pilot was highly successful, diverting 54.21 tons of food scraps from the landfill through 2022 with about 1,100 households participating. The program became permanent in 2023 with funding to expand drop site access to all boroughs of the City, creating a full service program. In addition, the program expanded to the entire Charleston region with other government partners hosting their own drop sites and growing the program.
Major updates will also be emailed to registered participants.
RESIDENTS CAN HELP complete the compost loop by joining the drop site program (for free) and purchasing Charleston’s own Bees Best Compost at local retailers. Visit beesbestcompost.com
