Kitchen Containers

You need a kitchen container to collect and transport kitchen scraps to your organics recycling cart.

You can find kitchen containers for a range of prices. You can also re-use a leak-proof container with a lid. Ice cream buckets work well.

We suggest you check the following locations to purchase a container for kitchen scraps:

  • Dollar stores
  • Home improvement stores
  • Garden Centers

Lining your Kitchen Container


Plastic and biodegradable bags cannot be turned into compost. If you use one in your organics recycling cart, we won’t collect it. This is because it can neither be recycled nor taken to the landfill.
