Feed the Green Bin!
Good news! This October, we will expand green bin collection into more areas of Columbia! Visit FeedTheGreenBig.org for details about what's accepted and to see if you're in the collection area. Residents in the new area will also receive sign-up postcards in their mail.
Don’t forget your friend the recycle bin! Be sure to feed it lots of empty recyclables – it’s always hungry! No need to rinse items, just make sure it’s empty.
Your bin’s favorite summertime snacks: plastic cups & plates, juice boxes, soda bottles, aluminum cans & foil, empty sunscreen bottles, glass bottles & jars. And some it doesn’t like: napkins/paper towels, chip bags/snack wrappers, leftover food, glow sticks, balloons.
