Free Compost Giveaway for Residents Saturday, August 27th!
The City and Republic Services partnered to amend the franchise agreements in November 2015 to roll out a comprehensive Organics Recycling Program. The new program, which went into effect on January 1st for residential customers, enabled residents to dispose of food and food-soiled paper directly into their green cans instead of their garbage cans. Previously, all of the yard debris from green cans went to the landfill as cover, but now, the combination of yard debris and food scraps (called "Organics") is going to a compost facility instead of the landfill – a significantly better outcome.
