Tips for Source Separating Organics At Home

  • To minimize odors caused by excess moisture include a few used paper towels in with the food waste.
  • Strips of newspaper or brown paper bag also work well to absorb liquids and will not affect the compostability.
  • To set up your kitchen select an organics collection container that is most convenient for you.
  • Label and display signage to indicate which container is designated for organics, recycling and trash.
