Residential

Compost it - Green Cart

Residential quanities (two litres or less) of cooking oil, sauces and grease can be placed in your green cart.

Tip: Solidify your oil by mixing it with an absorbent material such as paper towels, sawdust or kitty litter, then place it in a certified compostable bag or paper bag and place it in your green cart.
