Ask SSC FoodPlus! options for handling extra yard debris

2012-09-14-

FoodPlus! logo

Q: We subscribe to FoodPlus!, but during certain times of the year we have a lot of yard waste. Any options for extra material?

A: Dear Jason,

There are several options for dealing with extra FoodPlus! materials. Rates may vary slightly depending on where you live in Whatcom County.

Option 1 — Sign up for an additional Toter®. Cost: Low monthly rate dependent on where you live in Whatcom County. Use the additional Toter®(s) during summer and then cancel the extra(s) when no longer needed. You can do this as often as you like. Extra FoodPlus! Toter®(s) can be handy during the holiday season too.

Option 2 — Set out extra material in paper or compostable bag(s) (Max. size: 30 gal). Cost: $2.50/bag. You can find large “Yard Debris” or “Leaf” bags at local home improvement and garden centers.

Bulky Items: Bulky material that will not fit in FoodPlus Toters® should be cut to 4’ lengths, tied in bundles (max. weight 50 lbs.) and set next to FoodPlus Toter®. Charges for bulky material apply. Please contact us for questions.

Here is a list of yard debris/plant materials accepted in our FoodPlus! Recycling program:

  • Grass Clippings
  • Garden Trimmings/Weeds
  • Leaves/Branches
  • Floral Trimmings, Houseplants
  • Expired Floral Arrangements
  • Waxed Floral Paper/Cardboard
  • Seasonal Greens (Pumpkins, Cornstalks, Hay, Gourds, Garlands, Wreaths, Swags, etc.)

For questions or more information, please contact us or call (360) 734-3490. Thank you.
