Organics Recycling / Compost


Now you can recycle your food scraps and food-soiled paper into compost.  Please review the list
 of items that can and cannot be composted.

We are excited to use the Blue Bag Organics program which allows residents to place compost directly into their trash cart. This makes it easy on our residents and easy on our roads as we can eliminate an extra garbage truck!

For more information, view our brochure.
