Binny the Green Cart loves organic materials, but plastic makes him sick! Keep Binny healthy by letting all your food scraps, food soiled paper and plant materials “loose” in your green cart and putting any plastic film and wrap in the garbage. To keep it clean, you can line your kitchen pail with newspaper, paper bags or paper towels, use a milk/ice cream carton in your fridge, or add some yard waste to your green cart before you add food.
Tricky Recycling: Bag Your Bags, Not Your Recyclables
Putting recyclables in a plastic bag tangles up the recycling equipment, so let your recyclables “loose” in your blue cart. Reuse bags and collect all clean, loose plastic bags in one plastic bag and seal tightly. Take your “bags in bag” and drop it off at a store near you, or place it in your recycling cart.
