Organics Collection Overview

San Antonio is one of the few US cities that has an organics program. Your green cart is for items that can be composted into nutrient-rich material that the SWMD makes available back to the community. In FY 2020 your participation in this program helped divert 70,000 tons of material from the landfill.
