What Is Not Compostable?
These items should not go into your kitchen compost bucket or Blue Bag Organics liner. They do not compost:
|Aluminum foil||Personal sanitary
|Diapers or wipes|
|Cooking oils, fats,
|Pet droppings or
|Staples||Glass or metal|
|Rocks or bricks||Cigarette butts|
(grass clippings, flowers, leaves, brush, or branches)
|Recyclable paper or paperboard|
|Milk, juice and soup cartons
(plastic spout removed)
Recyclable paper and paperboard should not be placed in your Blue Bag Organics liner, unless it is needed to help absorb runny discarded food waste.
Recyclable paper and paperboard, as well as milk, juice and soup cartons (plastic spout removed), typically are picked up separately along with other recyclables. If these materials are not recyclable in your community, they can be placed in your Blue Bag Organics liner.
Yard waste (grass clippings, flowers, leaves, brush and branches) should not be placed in your Blue Bag Organics liner.
If your community has a yard waste recycling program, yard waste typically is picked up in a separate yard waste cart.
Blue Bag Organics programs in some communities may require households to place the hand-tied Blue Bag Organics liner into the yard waste cart on collection day, rather than in the trash cart.
