Although the take out containers are marked “biodegradable” there’s more to the story about how they should to be recycled. The City of Calgary reports the biodegradable containers do not biodegrade fast enough for their composting process.
Where should you dispose of the containers?
- Your blue recycle bin
- Any city recycle bin areas (in the cardboard bin)
- Your own compost bin
These containers are amazing and so much better than Styrofoam. Help city workers out by putting them in the right place so the composting project goes a lot smoother!
