Compost and Recycling Program
Food scraps are food and soiled paper sorted from your trash. These materials can be diverted from the landfill and turned into compost.
Sorting out your food scraps helps the environment in two ways:
1. Diverts material from the landfill. When food scraps are buried they do not only take up a lot of space but also produce greenhouse gases as they break down.
2. Food scraps are turned into compost. Compost is a soil amendment used by local farmers and in public parks and school grounds.
All recycling and compost services are half as expensive as trash service. Replace trash bins with blue, green, or yellow bins to save money on your monthly bill.
