Compost Cart Odor
Try layering dry yard waste and wet food waste to contain odors. When you don’t have yard waste, putting a layer of newspaper or shredded documents at the bottom of the cart, and bagging food scraps in a PAPER shopping bag is an option. Keeping the lid closed at all times holds odors in, even if the interior smells between pickups.
We make every effort to provide the best service possible. If your carts are skipped on your regular service day, please call our office (open Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00p.m.), or leave a message after hours on our 24-hour voice-mail system at (415) 457-9760. We will pick up your cart or return your call the following morning.
If you have extra yard waste, which does not fit in your cart, call us the day before your pick-up at (415) 457-9760 to ensure any extra bags/bundles will be picked up and not left behind. There is a $6.00 charge for each bag/bundle.
