With the City of Napa's new residential food composting program, tons of waste is being diverted from the landfills - and it's easy. The brown cart that you already have is not just for yardwaste anymore. You can also use the brown cart for all kinds of food scraps - fruits, vegatables, seafood, shellfish, meat, poultry, bones, fats, grease, rice, beans, pasta, bread, dairy, eggshells, and all prepared and cooked foods. You can also dispose of food-soiled paper products like paper towels, napkins, tissue, paper cups and plates, coffee grounds, filters, tea bags, waxed paper, waxed carbdoard and butcher paper. Please do NOT use your brown cart for plastic bags, wrap or straws, styrofoam, glass, metal, aluminum foil or foil-lined wrap, non-compostable wipes, diapers, hazardous waste, liquids, or pet waste. For detailed information on the program, including helpful tips and a full listing of accepted items, please visit naparecycling.com/residential-food-composting.

Following a major disaster in the Napa Valley, first responders who provide emergency services will not always be able to meet the immediate demand for these services. The high number of number of victims, communication failures and road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment's notice. Individuals will need to relay on themselves in order to meet their immediate lifesaving and life sustaining needs.
In the Napa Valley the CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams) training is provided through the collaborative efforts of various emergency agencies and coordinated by Napa County and is generally offered on a Friday evening and all-day Saturday and Sunday.
