Bioplastic meat, poultry and fish trays colored brown, light brown or tan are approved compostable and can go in your food and yard waste cart. They are not recyclable.
Paper-based trays can go in your food and yard waste cart.
All other trays and soaker pads from any kind of tray go in the garbage, including Styrofoam and natural fiber trays like Bagasse. Bagasse does not pass compostability testing here, despite claims the manufacturer may put on the package.
