  • Organic Recycling Tips

    Line your organics bin with newspaper Use paper towel to line the bottom of your caddy liners to soak up any moisture that can cause the liner to break down quicker than normal. Double wrap meat, bones and unwanted pet food (with newspaper or paper towel) before placing in your caddy. Wrap fish and seafood waste (in newspaper or paper towel) and place in your freezer until your next collection is due. Make sure you tie a knot in your caddy liner when it is full and before you place it in your organics bin.
