New curbside collection service is here – including food scrap curbside composting! We talk with Master Recycler Peggy La Point about the program and how to make it work.
INCLUDE THE FOOD
Our go-to Master Recycler Peggy La Point came over to our studios t sort through the new service. Sounds like it will take a little discipline and maybe a sense of adventure! LISTEN BELOW.
On October 31, all Portland single-family households (and residents living in buildings with four or fewer units) will be able to place all food scraps (including meat and bones!), along with yard debris, in their green Portland Composts! roll carts.
As part of the new Curbside Collection Service beginning October 31, the green Portland Composts! roll cart will increase to weekly pick up, and garbage collection will be changed to every-other-week, allowing additional food scrap and yard debris collection without raising prices for most residents. The blue roll cart and yellow glass recycling bin will continue to be collected every week.
