Cart Size & Cost
The recommended sizes below are based on food waste collection only and on findings from a test project (pdf) with 40 properties monitored over a year. If your building also has yard waste, you will need a larger size. All carts include compostable liners for carts used primarily for food waste. The service provider driver will insert a fresh liner in your cart(s) every week. If service is missed or you do not get a liner, please call (206) 684-7665.
