Food scrap recycling guide


Best Practices:

  • Store your food scrap in a container in your freezer, and take it out when it gets full. This prevents odors, stays cleaner, and reduces your trips to the Block Bin.
  • Essentially all organic matter can be recycled. However, rotting meat, rancid oil, spoiled milk, and feces will cause the Block Bin to smell. Please avoid these materials.
  • Please note that raw/cooked meat and fish will cause odors. Please put these in a paper bag before disposal.
