Why should Tenafly compost?

  • When you throw away organic waste, it ends up in landfills and releases methane, a potent and harmful greenhouse gas.

  • The average Bergen County household throws away 14 lbs of food waste per week. This makes up around 30% of all household trash!

  • Throwing out food waste is bad for the environment and costs Tenafly hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.

  • Your garbage will be less smelly!
