Composting your food scraps is easy!
Collect food scraps in your pail. You may choose to line your pail with paper or compostable bags. Every day (or every couple of days), empty the pail into your green cart and set at the curb on your collection day.
Kitchen pails are available to residents at District Headquarters located at 290 Paularino Ave, Costa Mesa. Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, and every other Friday from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm.
We also recommend lining your kitchen pail with compostable bags, newspaper, or brown paper bags to alleviate odor problems.
Where can you find compostable bags near you?
