Once you have received an organics collection cart at your home, you can begin.
Collect organics in a BPI-certified compostable bag. These bags can be purchased at retail locations such as Jerry’s Do It Best Hardware and Linden Hills Co-op. Remember, only bags labeled "BPI Certified Compostable” that meet ASTM D6400 standards may be used.
People typically line an old ice cream pail or small trash can with a compostable bag to collect food scraps. Once the bag is full, tie it up and place it in your organics cart. Organics carts are picked up weekly on your trash day.
