How to Use the Bins

BinsOrganic Waste Recycling: Step-by-Step

Step 1: Place organic material into your Kitchen Catcher (you can use a certified compostable liner bag, line your Kitchen Catcher with newspaper or don’t use any liner at all).

Step 2: Empty your Kitchen Catcher into your Green Bin (along with the certified compostable bag or liner).

Step 3: Place a new bag or liner in your Kitchen Catcher (or use it without a liner).

Step 4: Place your Green Bin at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your regular garbage collection day.

Your Green Bin organic waste will be collected weekly on your scheduled garbage pickup day. Place your Green Bin out weekly even if it’s not full. There is no additional charge for this new service and no bag tag is required for the Green Bin.


Look for paper liner bags or Certified Compostable plastic bags to use with your Kitchen Catcher and Green Bin. Plastic liner bags must be Certified Compostable and can be idendified by these logos.
