Organics (Yard & Food Waste)
Green Cart is an optional fee-for-service (non-refundable) program for residential yard and food waste. This program offers bi-weekly front-street collection and is available to single-family households with Blue and Black carts.
Residents can drop off leaves, grass, sod, topsoil, garden refuse, Halloween pumpkins, and non-elm branches, stumps and tree trimmings at the City’s two compost depots, at no cost. Sign up for Compost Depot service alerts.
Composting is the process of breaking down organic waste (such as food scraps, grass clippings, and dried leaves) into a rich soil amendment that your lawn and garden will love!
Every year, temporary drop-off sites are se-up to collect natural trees from December 26 to January 31.
