Green Cart Food and Yard Waste program

Weekly green cart food and yard waste collection has started for single-family homes. This easy and convenient program allows you to dispose of all your food and yard waste in your green bin. It will be turned into nutrient-rich compost at our new indoor composting facility rather than go to waste in our landfills.

Do you live in an apartment, condo, or townhouse? Learn more about Multi-Family Food and Yard Waste requirements.
