Organic Recycling Program

Commercial Recycling's Organic Recycling Program offers businesses the opportunity to divert organic material from their trash collection. The program includes:

  • waste audit and on-site assessment,
  • training of both internal and custodial staff,
  • 95-gallon carts, labels and posters,
  • collection and transport of materials to compost site,
  • and on-going assistance and training as needed.

The Organic Recycling Poster illustrates acceptable organic material.

A nominal monthly service fee is assessed based on the number of 95-gallon carts used and number of days per week they are serviced, as well as typical monthly volume collected. In order to adequately service medium to large generators, the minimum service level may not be offered to every business.
