Village Park Food Waste Kiosk Up and Running

The Town's third food waste kiosk is now up and running at Village Park, across from the Casco Bay Ice Arena. This marks the completion of the implementation of the food waste program, which also includes kiosks at Community Park and the Transfer Station, and offers free food waste disposal to all Falmouth residents. By diverting food waste from the landfill, the Town saves money and the waste gets repurposed into compost that can be used for land and garden care, resulting in less waste overall! Learn more about what you can and can't compost here.
