What is organics recycling?

Organics recycling refers to the closed loop of activities involved in the collection and processing of organic materials as well as the use of a recycled product – compost.

Organic materials that may be recycled include the following items: leaf and brush, yard trimmings, grass clipping, garden residue, food scraps and food soiled paper products that cannot be recycled with traditional materials.

In many ways you may already be contributing to organics recycling in our region through curbside collection of leaf and brush and grasscycling practices.  However, despite all of those good efforts, a significant portion of our waste stream still includes organic material that may be recycled.
