This Fall Be a Compost Quarterback!

Tackle Waste: 30% of the garbage Seattle sends to the landfill is made up of compostable food scraps.

Sack Your Scraps with paper or compostable bags. It’s an easy way to carry egg shells, banana peels, coffee grounds, napkins and other food scraps to your cart—just toss the whole thing in!

Punt Plastic. Keep plastic bags, metal, glass and all other non-organic material out of your food and yard waste cart. They ruin the compost.
