How to use your Green Cart

howtocart1
Collect your food scraps and food-soiled paper in a kitchen container of your choice.


Empty the kitchen container into your Green Cart. Yard trimmings may be added.


Place your cart between 5:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. on collection day. Unlock the wildlife-resistant clips.

 

Extra Green Carts

Extra Green Carts can be purchased for a one-time fee from $140-$160. There is no additional charge on your annual Utility Fee for having extra Green Carts collected.

Green Cart Tips

  • Keep the wildlife clips secured, unclipping them only on collection day.
  • Freeze food scraps, until collection day.
  • Line your Green Cart with newspaper or kraft paper bags.
  • Store in a secured and enclosed location.

Avoid a $150 fine. Do not put food scraps in your garbage.
