 Biodegradable products


Put products labelled as "biodegradable" in your black cart as garbage.

Common biodegradable products include bags, plastic cutlery and take out containers.

Why can't this be recycled/composted?
Biodegradable products cannot be recycled as they are made of multi-materials that cannot be separated and processed properly. They also cannot be composted either as the materials do not decompose and break down into smaller pieces of plastic-based material.
