Can I put my new kitchen pail on the curb?

No. The kitchen pails are provided to assist with in-home collection of your food waste and should not be placed on the curb for collection by the waste hauler. Residents with a yard waste cart should add their secured bag of food waste to that cart. Residents without a yard waste cart will be instructed on how to participate once their program is set up.
