Food Scraps Starter Kit

Ramsey County offers a free starter kit for residents who want to recycle food scraps. Kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Kits include

  • A small kitchen caddy.
  • Compostable bags.
  • Tips for success.
  • A loyalty punch card.

Loyalty punch card

When you complete five visits on your punch card, you earn a free t-shirt. If you visit a yard waste site and drop off food scraps, please ask a site monitor to punch your card. If you drop off food scraps at a 24/7 site, please track your own visits. Redeem a filled punch card at any Ramsey County yard waste site.
