Beginning October 2015, residents will no longer pay a $3 subscription fee for organics collection service. All San Antonio residents will have an opportunity to receive a green organics recycling cart as part of the new Pay As You Throw (PAYT) program. The green cart is for the weekly curbside collection of organic material such as:
- Shrub and tree trimmings
- Food scraps
- Food-soiled paper (e.g., used napkins, paper plates, and pizza boxes)
At this time, the service is not available in all areas of the City. As the PAYT service is expanded, residents are notified about the green cart via a door hanger and given the opportunity to opt out of the program. The green cart is collected on the same day as your blue recycling cart.
If you received a notification from the City indicating the service is available in your area, you can receive more information by calling 210-207-6428.
