What can I compost in Davis and Yolo County?

Tips & Guidelines
Did you know food scraps, un-coated food-soiled paper, and yard waste can be composted into a nutrient-rich soil amendment? Finished compost creates a valuable product used in parks and gardens. Approximately 40% of all material that ends up in the landfill could have been composted instead. When you keep food scraps, food-soiled paper and yard waste separate from your garbage, you extend the life of our landfills and conserve resources.

Food & yard waste collection is included with your residential garbage subscription at no additional cost! Food & yard waste is collected weekly on the same day as your garbage collection.
