Yard Waste Compost
Why Separate Your Organic Waste?Organic waste (food waste and food soiled paper) is the single largest component in the municipal solid waste stream (MSW). Decomposition of organics in a landfill produces methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more damaging than CO2. Organics is a valuable material that if properly collected and recycled can help reduce pollution and improve overall quality of life.
Organics are a ResourceOrganics Recycling programs are a sustainable solution that makes it easy for you to divert your food waste. You can help our community convert your source separated organics into nutrient rich compost that can be used on lawns, flower beds, vegetable gardens and local farms.
Organix Solutions’ compostable bags are made from BPI certified compostable materials. These durable yet compostable bags can withstand sunlight, rain and snow – and can stretch to resist most tears and punctures. But when the bags are composted at an industrial composting facility, the bag and the contents will fully compost in a few months.

Prepare a permanent spot within your kitchen and bathroom for an organics collection.
In your bathroom collect tissues, cotton swabs, and cardboard rolls. In your kitchen collect food waste, food-soiled paper, and other acceptable compostable items. Place them in your designated collection container.
Once a week tie a secure knot in the bag and place the bag in the designated organics disposal area.
