Frequently Asked Questions for Commercial Customers
Can I use compostable bags to line compost containers?
The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) must approve the bags. Find a full list on the Biodegradable Products Institute's website.
Why can't I put plastic bags in the blue Recycle Cart?
In addition, plastic bag recyclers require the bags to be clean in order for them to recycle them. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to keep them clean in a curbside program, and the majority would get disposed of as garbage even if they were put in with the recycling.
We encourage you to not use plastic bags if possible, but if you do, the best way to recycle them is to take them to grocery stores that accept them. You can find a list of participating stores on our Hard to Recycle page.
