About Compost It!

A Compost It! cart is on wheels, just like your Curb It! recycling cart, making it a convenient alternative to yard waste bags. Simply wheel it to the curb on garbage day during Compost It! season. The 96-gallon cart can hold the equivalent of three yard waste bags, but you can always use the Bags & Sticker program if your yard waste exceeds the cart's capacity. For more information, visit the Metro Wast Authority Cart Service page.

Spring is showing itself early which means residents are ready to get out and do some yard work! So it’s time to talk Compost It! Yard Waste Season!
