New Food Scrap Drop-Off Program for Sleepy Hollow residents

SHEAC is pleased to announce that Sleepy Hollow is now part of the Tarrytown-Sleepy Hollow Food Scrap Collection Program.  We want to encourage Sleepy Hollow residents to participate in this program which can substantially reduce the amount of waste that goes into our regular trash to be incinerated, turn our food waste into compost, and make our Village more sustainable.

Food scrap collection kits that include a starter roll of compostable bags can be purchased for $23 at the SH Village Clerk’s office or at Warner Library. Additional rolls of 25 bags can be purchased for only $2 at Warner Library.  Collection bins for food scrap drop-off are located next to the Tarrytown Senior Center (between the Senior Center and the Rec Center) in Pierson Park.

Click on the links provided below for more details about how the program works and a complete list of all the items that are accepted as well as those items that are not acceptable.  Important to note: this program accepts more items than would normally be used for backyard composting, such as meat and chicken bones, napkins, and paper towels that are soiled with food waste.

So pick up your food scrap collection kit now and JOIN THE PROGRAM!
