Approved Compostable Bags

turning your kitchen scraps and trimmings into nutrient rich feed stock for composting is now easier than ever. The inception of programs allowing food scraps to be placed in residential yard waste containers prompted Cedar Grove, manufacturers, and local agencies to develop “accepted” compostable kitchen bags for local residents.

You can find all currently accepted compostable bag items via the Composting Manufacturing Alliance's list of approved items, here. For a list of stores that carry many of these brands within King County, please visit King County’s solid waste section of their website.

Items Cedar Grove accepts from residential, curbside collection programs:
General Acceptance Standards
