What else can I do?

Always look for ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. Reduce your food waste by purchasing only what you need or by freezing items. Use plates, cups, silverware, and cloth napkins rather than disposable items. Recycle items by donating canned and dry goods that won't be used or by backyard composting of food scraps.


Continue to remove any organic products from your waste stream. These items include: 

  • All food scraps such as leftovers, peelings, spoiled foods
  • Certified compostable products such as compostable plastic food ware and bags labeled with a certified compostable logo
  • Soiled, non recyclable papers such as paper towels, napkins, delivery pizza boxes
