TSS County Customers Now Receive Mixed Compostables Service
Mixed Compostables carts were delivered to our County customers the last week in March. Be sure to fill them up and place them at the curb on your normal service day.
Composting kitchen scraps and yard trimmings can limit the amount of food you waste and help reduce your impact on landfills. In fact, if you compost on a continual basis, the volume of garbage you generate can be reduced by as much as 25%!
Remember, if it grows--it goes! All food waste, yard waste, and food-soiled paper.
Click on the Waste 101 brochure below which includes County Rate info as well as everything you need to know about what to do with your household waste.
If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or

Take the Pledge to Use Less Plastic
Change Begins Onshore. It Starts With You. Take the pledge to use less plastic every day.
Plastic lasts forever… our oceans are turning into plastic soup.
It doesn’t biodegrade and no naturally occurring organisms can break it down. Plastic photodegrades, which means that sunlight breaks it down into smaller and smaller pieces. Those small pieces drift in the ocean and are mistaken for food by fish and birds.
It is indisputable that plastic pollution is killing marine life through ingestion and entanglement in plastic marine litter.
Up to 80% of the plastic in our oceans comes from the land - us. Single-use is ocean abuse. So, make a pledge today to make these simple 5 changes, which will have a huge impact on our oceans health.
