No, you should not place food waste or food soiled paper products in your current green waste bin. The city does not yet have food waste collection services. If you have a curbside bin for yard waste recycling at home, please continue to only place yard waste inside. This includes grass, leaves, branches, and other plant trimmings. City of Arcata residents will receive more information in the coming months regarding compliance with SB 1383 and how to comply with the organics waste collection service that is expected to begin in 2024 or 2025.
