Cochrane's organics collection program accepts pet waste as long as it is in compostable bags. There are two logos we trust to be "certified compostable".
Yes, you can use a bag in your kitchen catcher — it makes it easier to move your organics to your green cart and can help keep your kitchen catcher clean. Make sure you use the right kind of bag: paper or certified compostable ONLY. Do not use plastic or so-called biodegradable bags. Look for logos that indicate “certified compostable.”
Using an in-sink garbage disposal unit puts more solids into the sanitary pipes, which leads to increased clogs and blockages. This means more service calls and added costs for the Town and homeowners. Using your organics cart ensures the material is used to make compost.
