The City of Rockville now offers residents two free food scrap drop-off sites to make composting easy, keep valuable materials out of landfills and reduce excessive greenhouse gas emissions:
- Rockville Senior Center at 1150 Carnation Drive.
- Maintenance Complex at 14625 Rothgeb Drive.
Food scraps will be picked up weekly by a commercial contractor and delivered to the Prince George’s County Organic Compost Facility.
How To Use the Drop-Off
- Place food scraps in a container (empty coffee containers with sealing lids are great for this). Be sure to remove any plastic or other trash.
- Bring full containers and empty them into the designated green bins at one of the Food Scraps Compost Drop-Offs. Follow the signs when you arrive. The sites are accessible 24/7 and the service is free of charge.
- Rinse container and repeat.
