More and more businesses are providing divided containers for trash, recycling and compost in their breakrooms and common areas. These bins help to divert waste from the landfill and get recyclable or compostable items to the proper facilities. This system only works if employees understand which materials go in each bin though so providing education and detailed signage will help to make the initiative successful.  So what goes into each bin?

Compost
• All food waste
• Paper plates
• Paper cups
• Napkins/paper towel
• Compostable products

Recycle
• Aluminum
• Glass
• Plastics
• Paper
• Cardboard

Landfill
• Chip bags
• Foil wrappers
• Non-recyclable plastics (products without a recycling symbol)
• Food service gloves
• Styrofoam
• Rubber
