Food Scraps @ MV Recycling Center Pilot - Register to Participate
Thank you for your interest in participating in a PILOT TO BRING YOUR FOOD SCRAPS AND FOOD SOILED PAPER IN A COMPOSTABLE BAG ONLY TO THE MOUNTAIN VIEW RECYCLING CENTER.

The Mountain View Recycling Center is located at 935 Terra Bella Avenue (cross-streets Shoreline Blvd. near Highway 101). This pilot gives residents who do not have multi-family collection yet an opportunity to compost food scraps and food-soiled paper.

We ask you to register to participate so that we can contact you if quality control issues arise and to get your feedback about the pilot. Food scraps processing is expensive and quality control is important. We all want the pilot to succeed!

WE WILL CONTACT YOU TO CONFIRM your participation and provide further direction.

ELIGIBILITY

This pilot at the recycling center is only available to RESIDENTS who live in apartments and multi-family complexes subscribed to SHARED TRASH (large gray metal dumpsters) and shared recycling carts.

WARNING

This pilot at the recycling center is to help those who wish to compost food scraps but don't have a program where they live. If you would like your complex to implement composting, in the questions section at the bottom of this form, please provide contact information for your property owner, manager or homeowner's association so we may seek their approval to add the program. Please indicate if your complex has an existing yard trimmings cart onsite.

HOW IT WORKS - IMPORTANT - MUST READ

After you register, you may pick up a complimentary kitchen countertop pail and a starter supply of compostable bags at the Mountain View Recycle Center. Use only compostable bags to line your pail. No milk cartons, ice cream cartons, plastic bags or vegetable bags because they don't break down. You may bring up to one week's worth of food scraps in compostable bags to the recycling center.

The reason we ask you to use compostable bags only is because they biodegrade but have enough strength to contain any drips that might dirty your car or sidewalks during transport. Plastic bags are not accepted, and paper bags will drip.

HOW TO SIGN UP - IMPORTANT - REQUIRED

Fill out the form below to register. We will email the instructional flyer. It is really important that you read the instructions and learn "What Goes Where" before you start this special pilot at the recycling center. Food scraps processing is expensive, and quality control is important.

Again, we want this program to succeed! We ask that you register to participate as part of the pilot so we may provide messages about quality control as needed and get your feedback.
