Beginning immediately, Napa residents can put food scraps and food-soiled paper in the brown compost cart along with yardwaste. To help residents begin composting, NRWS/NCRWS will provide all customers with a kitchen compost pail starting in April. The pails will be delivered over the next few months – but there is no need to wait for the pail; food scraps and food-soiled paper can go in the brown cart right away. All food scraps, including meat and bones, dairy, bread, fruit and vegetables will be accepted. Food-soiled paper, coffee cups, paper towels and napkins, and coffee grounds, filters and tea bags should also be included. Food scraps typically make up over 25% of what households throw away. When you add other compostable items such as paper napkins, coffee grounds and paper cups, it’s easy to see how composting will significantly reduce what we send to the landfill.
