Curbside Food Composting


  • Reduce moisture and odors in your pail or cart by adding soiled or shredded paper or wrapping your food scraps in newspaper.
  • Keep your compost pail clean by using a 2.6 or 3 gallon compostable bag liner. Various local stores and online vendors sell compostable bags.
  • Need a compost pail for daily collection of kitchen scraps? Contact us at 255- 5200 or [email protected] — or reuse any appropriate-sized container that you have at home.
  • Avoid odors, mold, and insects by washing your compost cart and pail regularly (the pail’s dishwasher safe but the label may not survive). It also helps to sprinkle baking soda or rub vinegar on the inside of your compost pail or cart lid.
  • Don’t have many yard trimmings, but still want to compost food scraps? Just contact Customer Service at 255-5200 or [email protected] to order a smaller compost cart.
