Organics Recycling Haulers


Organics — which includes food scraps and non-recyclable paper — makes up 38% of our garbage. Instead of going in the trash, organics can be recycled or reused.  

Pope/Douglas Solid Waste is working with haulers and recyclers to develop options for household and businesses for managing their organics generated.
