What should I do with my food waste/scraps?

Food scraps can be placed loose in your green organics cart. It’s ok if the food scraps are placed in a brown paper bag prior to putting into your green organics cart. Please do not place the food scraps in a plastic bag. Please call customer service at 831-636-7500 or visit our website for more information and options for the use of acceptable biodegradable bags. Pizza boxes that are soiled (e.g., with grease or food particles) can be placed in your green organics cart along with other food-contaminated paper products.
