The program is free. The City of Wyoming has received grant funding for a year pilot program. If the program is well received, the City will pay for the service in future years.
While this program is geared towards Wyoming residents, anyone with access to Oak Park can drop off food scraps.
Please see the Food/Drop-Off/Composting page for a complete list of what can and cannot be dropped within the scope of this program.
We encourage residents to use a certified compostable liner (which can be purchased HERE) in their receptacle of choice. This will help eliminate the mess in the individual container and the larger bins. However, this is not required. GoZERO will come and pick up the material every other week. Each time, they clean the bins and add new liners. The bins themselves are watertight and animal-proof.
GoZero has been in business and operating continuously since 2016. Their singular focus is innovating resource stewardship – starting with food waste, diverting it from landfilling, and working to make it easy for mid to small-scale food waste generators to do their part. GoZERO provides food waste compost courier services to K-12 schools, universities, offices, manufacturing facilities, grocers, restaurants, community drop-offs, and events. They currently serve 12 public localities at 20 stations and 11 privately hosted stations across Western and Central Ohio.
All compostable material picked up is delivered to a family farm near Toledo, OH, where it is composted into a rich soil amendment full of organic matter, nutrients, and probiotics for soil building and growing healthy plants. GoZERO is also looking for new facilities closer to its Southwest Ohio customers.
