Organic waste is waste that can break down naturally. Organic waste covers all things related to food waste, yard waste, green waste, and wood waste. At Atlas Disposal, we like to talk about green waste and yard waste separately from food waste because of customers for each are different and require different education and waste solutions.
List of Organic Waste Materials
- Floral trimmings
- Branches and stems
- Grass and lawn trimmings

Should I compost my organic waste?
All of your green waste, yard waste, and food waste can be diverted in a few different directions to be recycled and reused. For a long time, all of your organic waste could be mixed to create compost for everyone to use. Modern technology has developed ways to turn fresh green waste and food waste materials into renewable energy. That could be in the form of renewable electricity or renewable natural gas.
Organic Waste as Renewable Energy
Over 60% of the Atlas Disposal fleet runs on compressed natural gas (CNG) that is sourced as renewable natural gas (RNG) from renewable sources! Check out our energy division at ReFuelEnergyPartners.com for more information.
