Municipal Organic Waste Pick-up
Some municipalities provide organic waste pick-up a few weeks each year. Do your research to find out what weeks of the year your municipality picks up organics. Be careful not to leave organics out at times when there is no pick-up, as nutrient runoff from leaves or brush can harm water sources.
Some companies will contract with residents to dispose of their organic waste. Check with your municipality for a list of commonly used contractors.
Drop-off at a Municipal Site
Some municipalities provide a drop-off site for organic waste. Some also leave the finished compost, wood chips, or mulch out for residents to take home. Other nearby municipalities may accept organic waste from residents in your municipality.
