All compostable items should go in your gray cart. You can compost:
- Food scraps (including meat, bones, shells, and dairy)
- Food-soiled paper like pizza boxes and paper napkins
- Compostable bags like BioBags or kraft paper bags
- Coffee grounds and paper filters

Use Cedar Grove approved compostable plates, cups, and cutlery – it’s important the item says compostable (not biodegradable, earth-friendly, plant-based, etc). No plastic is allowed in the compost.
All the material in your gray cart goes to Cedar Grove composting facilities in Everett or Maple Valley, where it's turned into compost in a matter of weeks.
