New Food Scraps Recycling Program for Pleasant Hill Residents and Businesses

Aug 29, 2016 10:15AM, Published by Elena Hutslar, Categories: Community




Beginning Monday, October 3, Pleasant Hill residents can start recycling food scraps using the green waste cart provided to every home. The week prior to that, Republic Services will deliver 3-gallon food pails to every household in the city. These food pails are ideal for storing food scraps in the kitchen before emptying the contents into the green waste bin. The green waste and food scraps (known as ‘organics’) will be taken to a composting facility in West Contra Costa County.

 

In addition to the new organics recycling, residents will be able to receive up to one cubic yard of free compost per year. Republic Services and the city will notify residents when this giveaway is scheduled.

 

In order to minimize the cost to residential customers for this new service, the city is covering the cost to implement the organics program for the initial period of October 3 through December 31. The city is also paying for food pails for every household. There will be a rate adjustment on January 1, 2017, capped at five percent, which includes the annual CPI increase as well as the cost to implement the organics service. Most businesses will also begin organics recycling over the next two years. For more information, contact Martin Nelis at mnelis@pleasanthillca.org or call (925) 671-5229.
