Order Food Scrap Bags

These food scrap bags are required to participate in the program. Other compostable bags will not be identified in the sorting process.

To use, collect your food scraps in the food scrap bag. Once a week, or when the bag is full, tie the bag shut with a knot (like you would a balloon). Place the food scrap bag inside your trash cart or dumpster for collection.
