Paper straw

How to compost paper straws

Put paper straws in your green cart for composting.

Special instructions

If the straw has a glossy shine on the inside or outside, it must be labelled as “compostable” in order to go in the green bin.

This ensures that the straw does not contain any plastic and is ok to compost. If the paper straw is not labelled as compostable, put in the black cart as garbage.
