When we refer to "organics", we are not talking about the pesticide-free produce you buy at the grocery store. Organics is a term we use to describe materials such as food scraps, food-soiled paper and plant debris. These materials, when sent to a composting facility, will become compost - a valuable resource used by landscapers and farmers.
Be sure to place the following items into your food scraps container.
- all leftover food and food scraps
- dirty or food-soiled paper (napkins, paper towels, coffee grinds & filters)
- plant debris, landscaping materials, green waste
