Recycling CenterEnjoying an orange while at the library and about to throw that peel in the trash? Not so fast! The library’s Environmental Committee is thrilled to announce we have added a compost collection bin to our main lobby recycling center. Compost Nashville, a sponsor of the library Environmental Committee, collects our compost weekly and then takes the materials offsite to turn them into soil.

We invite you to throw any leftover materials you consume at the library in the compost bin. Items like paper and cardboard cups and containers, paper towels, napkins, tissues, and food scraps are all items that can be added to our compost. We hope you’ll join us in helping Brentwood recycle food waste through composting!
