How will Household Organics Collection work?

Households will be invited to collect their organics in a bin of their choice at home and then bring to a community drop site for pick-up. 

How to get started:

  1. Place a container of your choice in a convenient place for collecting organics recyclables. Line your container with a paper bag or a BPI certified compostable bag.
  2. Collect organics recyclables. (What is Organics Recyclable?)
  3. Tie the bag shut and bring it to a Stevens County Organics Drop Site.
  4. Tell your neighbors!

The Stevens County Organics Recycling Program invites you to pick up a free Organics Recycling Starter Kit from the Stevens County Courthouse and learn how you can recycle organics at home! Starter kits include a 3-gallon bucket, compostable bags, information on what is organics recyclable, and stickers to label your household waste bins! Starter kits are available in English and Spanish.
