Who is eligible for an exemption waiver for organics recycling?

The following businesses are eligible for an exemption waiver: 

  • Businesses that generate at least 2 cubic yards of solid waste and less than 20 gallons of organic waste per week; or businesses that generate less than 2 cubic yards of solid waste and less than 10 gallons of organic waste per week. 
  • Businesses that have no space on-site for additional containers. 
  • Businesses that utilize a landscaper to remove all green waste offsite and have no food waste.

Waivers will be assessed for both food waste and green waste service needs.  Businesses may be waived from the food waste collection requirement, the green waste collection requirement, or both, as needed.  For example, a business that does not produce any food waste may be waived from food waste collection service but may need to subscribe to green waste service, depending on the amount of landscape waste that’s generated.
