Keep a container lined with a compostable bag near the kitchen sink for plate scrapings and prep scraps. Wrap smelly food, like fish, in newspaper and freeze. Place food scraps in securely tied compostable bags. Never use plastic shopping bags. Twist-ties are OK.
Only use approved compostable bags with the Biodegradable Products Institute logo. Two sizes of free replacement bags are available at WLSSD-staffed drop sites or for purchase at Duluth area businesses including Marshall Hardware, Ace Hardware, Whole Foods Co-op, and Twin Ports Paper & Supply.
Anything that is or was edible: raw and cooked food, meat, fish, small bones, spoiled/moldy food, fruits, vegetables, peels & pits, cheese, breads, dough, pasta, rice, old pet food, tea bags, coffee grounds & filter.
Pet waste, kitty litter, diapers, liquids, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, regular plastic bags and containers, dirt, rocks
