Household Organics Recycling
Household Organics Recycling is the collection of organic material for composting. Saint Paul residents can collect household organics in their home and take it to a drop-off site listed below. Drop-off sites take more materials than you can put in your backyard compost bin. Items accepted include:
- All food scraps, including vegetables, fruits, meats (including fats, oils, and grease), poultry, fish, bones, grains, dairy, coffee grounds and filters, tea bags, etc.
- Non-recyclable paper, including greasy pizza boxes, paper towels, tissues, dirty paper bags, tissue paper, etc.
- Compostable cups, plates, utensils, bags, etc. Check that it has the “Compostable” logo from the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) on the item or packaging to ensure it is compostable.
