Which bags can I use in my compost?

All compostable materials picked up by the city's compost program through Republic Services go to A-1 organics.  They are only accepting CMA Approved compostable bags and items, because those items are field-tested for disintegration to be sure they break down under our local conditions. There are many bags on the list to choice from.

It is preferable to use no bags if possible or to choose a brown yard craft bag or a CMA Approved green bag if you choose to bag your compost. It can be confusing for the hauler when people use bags that are white, because the hauler doesn't know if they trash bags or not.
