There are two ways to participate in the Organic Waste Recycling program. First, residents can place all food waste and food-soiled paper in the green Organic Cart along with yard waste. Second, residents can start a compost pile in a backyard garden. However, there are some food waste items that are not easily composted at home, such as bones, meat, greasy foods, dairy, and food-soiled paper. These items go in your organic cart so that they can be composted at a commercial composting facility.
