The following go in your food and yard waste cart:
  • Plastic-like containers containers, cups, plates, and items marked "Compostable," “PLA,” or "Cedar Grove Compostable"
  • Plain, uncoated paper plates and bowls such as Chinet brand
  • Utensils (forks, spoons, and knives) marked “Compostable”
  • Brown straws
If in doubt, throw it in the garbage. Do not recycle plastic-like compostable food service products (plastics labeled with a #7 PLA symbol). Such products are also not recommended for backyard composting.
