Composting 101

Why separate your organic waste?

Organic waste (food waste and food soiled paper) is the single largest component in the municipal solid waste stream (MSW). Decomposition of organics in a landfill produces methane, a greehouse gas 20 times more damaging than CO2. Organics are a valuable material that if properly collected and recycled can help reduce pollution and improve overall quality of life.

About our Program

It’s easy as 1 2 3

Step 1
Collect food waste and food-soiled paper from meals, refrigerator and pantry into your container lined with the compostable bag.

Step 2
Biodegradable Products InstituteWhen the compostable bag is full, tie a secure knot in the bag and place it in the same cart as your trash. Please place the compostable bag on top of the trash bags then close the cart lid. This will help the driver see the compostable bag.

Step 3
On your regular trash day, place your cart at the curb and your hauler does the rest.

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS, THE ORGANICS FROM HOUSEHOLDS LIKE YOURS WILL BE CONVERTED TO PREMIUM RICH COMPOST.
