Did You Know?
Compostable bags get stuck in grinding equipment at the Composting Facility.
Compostable bags do not fully break down and contaminate compost.
Line your mini bin and green cart with newspaper, boxes or paper bags instead.
Paper breaks down 100% and you can find these things in your home!
Find out what goes in your green bin. Call (902) 543-2991 for more information.
