The Handy Kitchen Pail

Reduce Waste by Sorting Food Scraps and Food-Soiled Paper

 

  • Use the handy kitchen pail to store your food scraps and food-soiled paper until you empty it into the green ORGANICS cart or bin.
  • You can line your pail with compostable or paper bags, paper towels/napkins or newspaper. No plastic bags permitted.
  • A list of certified compostable bags can be found at: www.bpiworld.org.
  • Do not place the pail at the curb for collection.

  • all leftover food
  • peels, pits & rinds
  • dairy products
  • bread, rice, pasta & other grains
  • meats & bones
  • coffee grounds & filters
  • tea leaves
  • backyard fruits & vegetables
  • food-soiled paper napkins, plates & towels
