Keep Sedona Beautiful is a strong proponent of composting. Among many other benefits, composting reduces waste, combats climate change and enriches the soil.

If you’re not yet composting, and you live in Sedona, KSB suggests that you look into participating in the new city of Sedona community food scraps compost program.

According to the city, “Participating households will be able to drop off food scraps at Posse Grounds Park during open park hours. The drop-off location is located by the tennis courts at the current Sedona Recycles drop-off location. It is fenced off to prevent javelina and other animals from accessing the site.

Vegetable scraps, bread, grains, tea bags and coffee grounds will be accepted, while meat, bones, bioplastics and yard waste will not be accepted. All food scraps will be removed and composted by Compost Crowd, a local business the city is partnering with.”

If you’re interested, you can now sign up to participate by filling out an application at 29 of the 100 available slots are filled.

Note that you must be a permanent resident of Sedona to participate in this program.
