Cart tips:

A few simple steps will keep your new compost cart clean and reduce potential odors

  • Set out cart every week (even when it's not full). Regular collection will make sure material doesn't sit in your cart too long.
  • Line your cart with newspaper or a piece of cardboard to keep material from sticking to the bottom of your cart.
  • Store cart in cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
  • Place kitchen scraps in layers between grass, leaves or other garden material.
  • Use paper bags (not plastic) to keep kitchen scraps contained.
  • If your cart needs to be cleaned, rinse out your cart with a hose and dump rinse water out on your lawn (not in a storm drain).
