You will receive an organics recycling cart in early June. If you already have a Vierkant Disposal organics cart, you will still receive a new cart and your current cart and service will convert to yard-waste only. Organics collection begins sometime in June once carts have been delivered to all homes.
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.
