Free food scrap containers from RecycleMore at my office!
Help our environment by composting your food waste
Back by popular demand, FREE food scrap pails are available in my office for pickup to the first 100 residents who come by!

Use the pail to collect food scraps and food-soiled paper in your kitchen, then dump into your curbside green cart, or your backyard compost bin. 

Compostable bags may be used to keep your pails and carts clean.

By diverting your food scraps and plant debris to the composting facility, you can help reduce climate-harming methane and generate nutrient-rich compost for agriculture. 

If you need a green cart for curbside organics collection, contact Republic Services at 510.262.7100. ( NOTE: Kensington residents do not have this program; El Cerrito residents can call East Bay Sanitary at 510.237.4321 to learn more about their services). 

More information about Republic Services' West County programs can be found here. Discounted backyard composters are available here
