Using Your Compost Cart


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).



  • Compost collection is unlimited. Simply fill your cart first, then place any extra materials in paper leaf bags and set out next to your cart for collection.
  • Only compost program participants receive year-round leaf collection
  • By participating in the compost program, customers receive the lowest rate
  • Compost cart is conveniently serviced the same day as your trash
  • Finished compost is available free to residents
