Food Scraps and Spoiled Food


Only fruit and vegetables that have not been prepared (cooked, dried, seasoned, etc.) or are not partially eaten can be placed in the green compost bin. Acceptable items include peels, cores, seeds and avocado pits.

Place everything else, including meat, egg shells or prepared food, in the landfill cart.


Reduce food waste by meal planning, freezing food, proper storage of fruits and vegetables and participating in food drives. Learn how to properly store your food so it keeps longer.
