To offer assistance to those residents who have lost food items as a result of hurricane Dorian, Miller Waste will be accepting, in addition to the compost cart, one compostable bag for leaf and yard waste per residence.
The following shall apply:
Maximum weight of 100kg (220 pounds) per cart•
One compostable bag per residence for leaf and yard waste, maximum weight of 25kg (55 pounds) per bag•
No brush, limbs or tree parts, other than leaves will be accepted
Please Note: All food waste should go in the compost cart in order to keep the smaller animals from ripping a bag open.
All food waste must be clear of all non-compostable packing materials prior to placing in the compost cart, or the cart will be rejected.
Maximum weights are important and we remind you that the compostable bag cannot be overweight since someone is required to lift it into the truck.
The compostable material must fit into the truck and must be acceptable at the compost facility, so therefore no brush, limbs or tree parts, other than leaves, will be collected. Leaf and yard waste means leaves, small twigs, and grass clippings.
