Put plastic containers and cups labelled compostable in the black cart as garbage.

Why can't this be composted/recycled?

Plastic materials are not accepted in the green cart because these items do not breakdown quickly enough during the composting process at our facility.

Compostable plastic containers are not accepted in the blue cart because this type of plastic is not acceptable in the program.
