How do I participate in the food scraps collection program?

Food scraps collection is part of the standard curbside service for all residential customers that are included in the City’s organized curbside collection services.

Participation in the food scraps collection program is accomplished in 3 easy steps.

  • Step 1 – Place food scraps in your kitchen container lined with a compostable bag.  Checkout this list of acceptable materials.  A good rule of thumb is “If it grows, it goes.”
  • Step 2 – Place food scraps contained in compostable bags, paper bags or loose in the green lid organics cart along with yard trimmings.
  • Step 3 – Place the green lid organics cart at the curb every week on your collection day by 6:00 am.  Crews will pick up the food and yard scraps with regular curbside collection.
