 Compostable cutlery


Put plastic cutlery labelled as "compostable" or "biodegradable" into your black cart as garbage. This includes plastic forks, spoons and knives.

If you live in an apartment, condo, townhouse or other multi-family complex, check with your compost collection company to see if they accept compostable cutlery.

Why can't this be composted?

  • Though marked "compostable", this cutlery won't break down quickly enough for our composting process.
  • Biodegradable cutlery contains non-compostable/plastic material that will contaminate the finished compost.​​​​​
