We are working with properties to minimize the number of food scraps containers stored on City property.
Before you apply to store a food scraps container on City property for your multi-unit residence, mixed-used building, or food-related business, take the following steps to see if there is a way to reduce your food scraps, better manage food scraps and collection, and find space for containers on your property.
Step 1: can you reduce your food scraps?
Find out how much food scraps your property produces and how to reduce that number.
Step 2: can you manage food scraps and collection better?
Improve how you manage food scraps, including how often it's collected.
Step 3: can you make space on your property for containers?
Consider whether you can use indoor, outdoor, or parking space for food scraps containers.
Still need to store a container on public property?
If you determine that you still need to store a food scraps container on City property, review how to get a permit.
