Recycling Organics- Green Curb Carts
One of the City's most popular recycling programs is curbside organics recycling. Green Curb Carts are available from the Sanitation Division by calling 761-7977. These carts can be filled with organic material: grass clippings, tree trimmings, kitchen food waste and paper products: junk mail, cardboard, newspaper, paper plates and cups and magazines. This waste is then turned into top-quality compost available FREE twice a year to program participants.
