UT-MEDIUM-Where to retire organics-660x396.jpg

Our waste system depends on you to be successful, and that starts with sorting materials correctly. The green cart is used to collect organic materials. 

Your green cart is for more than just grass clippings and yard waste. You can also put these in your green cart:

  • food scraps
  • soiled paper
  • coffee filters
  • plant material
  • twigs

These and other compostable materials are turned into valuable compost. It takes about one year to turn our organics into compost. If these items were put in a landfill, they may never actually break down.


Think you can’t make a difference? Think again. Don’t be a landfiller.
