Getting Started with Food Scrap Recycling

Select a kitchen collection container that suits your needs.

100 percent compostable kitchen bags for collecting food scraps are sold at many stores in King County. Residents of King County can request a free BioBag sample via e-mail. City of Seattle residents may contact Marcia Rutan.

Ceramic or stainless steel containers made especially for food scrap collection, and sold at kitchen shops.

Paper grocery bags are a good choice. You can recycle the bag along with the food scraps.

Repurpose a container, such as a yogurt container or coffee can with a lid, that you can use over and over again.
