OCRA Group Continues & Expands Volunteer Food Scrap Curbside Pick-Up Service


A new group of Original Civic Research & Action (OCRA) students at Mamaroneck High School are continuing the curbside food scrap pick-up in the Village of Larchmont that previous OCRA students started. This continuing pilot project is now run by Jake Gill, Gavin Sneyd, Tessa Goldsmith, James Chaice, and Owen Wallace.  An OCRA participant offered: “We are operating in two zones in the Village, a section of Chatsworth Avenue and in the Manor. We look forward to expanding the Saturday curbside pick-ups in the Village and especially in the Manor.  You will see us around the Village picking up your food scraps, delivering them to Maxwell Avenue Recycling Facility, saving residents many car trips and thus benefiting the environment in many ways!”

Please email with any questions and/or to indicate your interest to participate in this food scrap curbside pick-up service.
