What Goes Where?

Do you ever feel confused about which bin to put your waste in? We don’t blame you! Aside from obvious food scraps, product packaging does not always make it intuitive or easy to decipher.

There are a few good rules of thumb, though. Remember, if you’re not sure of where to put an item, throw it out. We don’t love to see items go to the landfill, but the alternative of contaminating a whole bin of compost with Styrofoam, is just not worth the risk.

Check out this chart, to help you identify what goes where the next time you’re out at a green event!
