Food Scraps and Organics

What Happens to My Food Scraps and Organics?

Yard waste and other organic materials such as vegetable food waste are collected curbside and taken to a state-licensed compost facility where they are processed into compost and mulches.

Why Recycle / Compost Food Scraps?

Composting organics reduces the amount of material that is landfilled and helps reduce greenhouse gas production. Compost and mulches are used to rebuild local soils, protect topsoil from erosion due to wind and rain, suppress weeds, conserve water and attract earthworms. The material you put in your bags and containers is used by organic farms, backyard gardeners, nurseries, landscapers, and public agencies.
