Yes! You can use plastic compostable bags (not biodegradable bags) when you drop off compost. Some participants use paper bags such as lunch sacks or grocery bags, all of which are compostable as well. You are also free to tip your compostable items directly into the bin.
If you sign up for the City's 24/7 residential drop-off service, we will provide 10 compostable plastic bags in your Welcome Kit to get you started. We also will include information in your welcome email and flyer about the BPI logo to look for when purchasing additional compostable plastic bags.
