The City of Jurupa Valley and Waste Management are happy to announce that residential customers of Waste Management can now place food waste into their curbside green bin. Food waste still contains nutrients that are useful for a variety of other applications and the Waste Management service ensures that your food waste gets put to good use through a composting process. Composting food waste is good for the environment and reduces the amount of waste that we send to the landfill. At this time, this service is only available to Waste Management customers. Burrtec customers do not have access to this service.
Acceptable food and organic waste that can be placed into the Waste Management green bin...
- Dairy Products
- Baked Goods
- Food Soiled Paper (coffee filters, tea bags, napkins, paper plates)
- Yard Waste (grass, leaves, branches)
- Plastic bags
- Waxed paper cups and plastic utensils (even if they say "biodegradable" or "compostable"
