NO. Currently, our local processing facility does not accept compostable food ware, such as compostable plates, cups, utensils, or napkins. If these items are added to the bagged food waste or loose yard waste material, it will contaminate the material. While these items might be labeled “compostable”, these items should be disposed of in the landfill.
The City will continue to look for local opportunities to recycle compostable materials and we will publicize these changes as they happen.
