The contents of your green cart may freeze in winter, preventing the waste hauler from emptying it. Here are a few things you can do to keep your food scraps from sticking to the sides and bottom of your cart:
- The most important tip of all -- ensure your cart is emptied during every collection, even if it isn't full! This will provide space for additional food scraps should your cart's contents freeze to the sides, making it difficult for the waste hauler to empty it.
- Use a strainer in your sink to strain excess liquid from foods before putting them in your cart.
- Wrap high-moisture foods in newspaper or stick them inside cereal boxes.
- Line your kitchen bin with paper liners or paper grocery bags, fold the bags over and place in your cart. This will prevent wet food waste from sticking to the cart walls.
- Line your cart with a paper leaf and yard waste bag to keep food scraps from sticking to the sides.
- Put balls of newspaper on the bottom of your cart to prevent food waste from sticking to the bottom.
- Alternate layers of food waste with sawdust, dry leaves, cold stove ashes or small pieces of brush, less than 2 inches in diameter.
