Please note, plastic bags are not accepted and must be emptied and retained.  If you choose to bag yard and organic waste, compostable bags are accepted.  This reduces processing costs and enhances the quality of the finished compost, as the amount of plastic being sent to the landfills is greatly reduced. You may also drop off loads of unbagged yard / organic waste.
