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:
Place your cart at the curb during every organics collection -- even if it isn't full. This will provide more space for food scraps if your cart can't be emptied due to freezing.
Strain excess liquid from foods before putting them in your cart.
Wrap high-moisture foods in newspaper or stick them in a cereal box.
Line your cart with a paper leaf and yard waste bag.
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 or dry leaves.
