Beginning this Saturday, individual residents will be able to bring frozen food scraps to be composted by the Composting Network. The Composting Network will accept fruit and vegetable scraps (peels, skins, pits, or seeds), tea bags, coffee grounds including paper filters, eggshells, nutshells, seed shells, plain bread, grains, and plain pasta. The Network will not accept meat, dairy, bones, or foods with oil.
On Saturday, April 14, 2018, the City of New Orleans Department of Sanitation kicked off its partnership with The Composting Network. The City will accept composting materials this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the City’s Recycling Drop-Off Center (2829 Elysian Fields Avenue) during its monthly drop-off event.
