There is a public food waste drop-off location available 24/7 at the West Lafayette Street and Sanitation Department at 705 S. River Road in West Lafayette.  The food waste and cooking oil is then taken to the anaerobic digester housed at the West Lafayette Water Resource Recovery Facility, and processed to generate electricity for the facility.  The remaining biosolids are given to Tippecanoe County Farmer to be used as fertilizer.  Learn more about this program here!
