Renters and Yard Waste

At my apartment there is a dumpster for trash and a dumpster for recycle. There is no separate dumpster for organic yard waste. To my knowledge there are no organic trash bags for yard waste either.

Here is the list of items that can be included in yard waste:

What are renters to do about this? I have coffee grounds, banana peels, apple cores, and trimmings from tomatoes, onions and green bell peppers. I feel pretty bad about putting it in the trash but what choice do I have? Are we going to get a third dumpster for yard waste?
