Place Food Scraps in your Green Bin
Food Scraps

From our friends at IWMA - Which bin do food scraps go in? Your green bin! Here are some ways to store your food scraps before pick-up day: ⁠

  • Get a free kitchen compost pail from the IWMA office! Rinse it out weekly.⁠
  • Purchase a stainless steel pail (found at local stores) that comes with a charcoal filter in the lid!
  • Store in a bag in the freezer to reduce smell & empty directly into green waste bin before pick-up day.⁠

⁠Don't have a green bin at your house, business, or apartment complex yet? Call us (IWMA) at (805) 782-8530 & we will help you get set up! ⁠

⁠SB 1383 (new law) is a statewide effort to send food scraps to composting facilities rather than the landfill. This will reduce methane emissions from landfills & create nutritious compost for farms, wineries, & residents. ⁠

IWMA Office:  870 Osos St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
