How do I control odors?
  • Clean the green cart and pail regularly to reduce odors and avoid pests. 
  • Sprinkle baking soda in the cart and layer yard trim or uncoated paper loosely in the bottom to absorb excess moisture. 
  • Put compostable materials in the refrigerator or freezer before placing them in the green cart.
