Composting

You can reduce your waste by up to 30% by composting.  Use your compost to nourish your lawn and plants, eliminate the need for fertilizer and reduce watering needs.

You can get started by collecting your food scraps in a kitchen collector, buying a composter and participating in the City’s Green Cart Program.
