How to Use the Organics Recycling Carts

Organic waste may be bagged in compostable or paper bags, or wrapped in newspapers, before being placed in an organic cart. Consider asking for paper bags when shopping for groceries; after groceries are unpacked, those same bags can be used to collect and dispose of organic waste.

Small reusable organics recycling containers for kitchen use are available through Amazon and other retailers. 

Please be sure to close cart lids when you are done disposing of your organic waste.
