Why Separate Your Organic Waste?

Green Bag Organix LogoFood waste (organics) is 26% of the municipal solid waste stream, the single largest component of our trash. When organics are properly separated from the trash, this valuable material can be recycled at a composting facility. This helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions including methane, a gas 20 times more damaging than CO2.

Organix Co-Collection Program: Cost-Effective and Sustainable

Organix Co-Collection is a sustainable curbside organics recycling program that makes it easy for you to collect your food waste. Using the Green Bag Organix compostable bags, you’ll collect your food waste in your kitchen each week. When the bag is full, tie a knot in the bag and place it in your existing trash cart at the curb on your regular trash day. The compostable bags will be sorted at the new Zero Waste Facility and delivered to a local composting facility.

BPI LogoYou can help our community convert source separated organics into nutrient rich compost that can be used on lawns, gardens and local farms. The benefits of compost use are well known including carbon sequestration, soil restoration, pollution reduction and improving overall quality of life.

Green Bag Organix are certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPIworld.org). These bags are durable yet compostable – can stretch to resist most tears and punctures, and withstand sunlight, rain and snow. When the Green Bags are composted at a commercial composting facility, the bag and its contents will fully compost within a few months.

Organics Recycling is as EASY as 1-2-3

  1. Collect food waste and food-soiled paper from meals, the refrigerator and pantry into your container lined with the compostable Green Bag.
  2. When the bag is full, tie a secure, ponytail-style knot and place it in your current trash cart, NOT recycling.
  3. On your regular trash day, place your ABC Disposal cart at the curb and your hauler does the rest.
