Starting April 1, 2019, Flood Brothers will be offering a voluntary food scrap composting program to single-family residences throughout the Village. Residents who enroll in this program will have the ability to mix food scraps with yard waste by placing food scraps (fruit and vegetable scraps, etc.) at the curb in a rigid and lidded container, or in a rented Flood Brothers 95-gallon yard waste cart (arranged directly through Flood Brothers for an extra $2.25/month).
The program will be available to all single-family residences at no additional cost, unless they choose to rent a Flood Brothers yard waste cart.
