 Compostable takeout food containers and cups - paper


Recycle clean, compostable paper takeout food and compostable paper cups:

  • In your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

Special instructions

  • Put all food scraps into the green cart for composting.
  • Put all plastic cutlery in the black cart as garbage.
  • Some grease on the container is ok.

Why can't this be composted?

Though marked "compostable," paper containers don't break down quickly enough for our composting process.
