How do I dispose of cat litter and pet waste?

Can you compost pet waste and kitty litter?

Yes. Put pet waste and kitty litter (all varieties) in your green cart for composting.

How do I prepare pet waste for composting?

  • Pet waste must be put in a certified compostable bag or paper bag for dust control in order to protect your collector.
  • Place the tied up/rolled up bag in your green cart for composting.
  • Biodegradable bags are not accepted in the Green Cart Program. We only accept certified compostable bags. Biodegradable and plastic bags do not break down and end up as small pieces of plastic that will contaminate the compost.

Apartment or condos

If you live in a multi-family complex, check with your compost collection company to see if they accept pet waste.
