Organic Waste Bins
Check the poster below for information on what is acceptable to be placed in your Organics Bin.
During the winter there are a few more things suggested to help with collection:
- In winter, organics will freeze in the bins. Place newspaper or cardboard in the bottom of the bin to ensure your bin will empty.
- Loosen any frozen material before placing the bin.
- Bag your compost in biodegradable/compostable bags. Not plastic.
