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.
We recommend you seal all your food waste in BPI Certified Compostable Bags (ASTM D6400) before making deposits. This keeps the bin cleaner and reduces flies.
Essentially all organic matter can be recycled. However, rotting meat, rancid oil, spoiled milk, and feces will cause the Block Bin to smell. Please do not deposit these materials.
Please lock the Block Bin and do not share the lock code with people not covered by your subscription.
Time your deposits to be closer to the pick up day when possible.
