Plastic Containers


Updated on March 9, 2019



Container should be "mostly clean." Quickly rinse or wipe out food into compost before putting in the recycling bin. If container says "compostable" on it, compost it.


Opt for a reusable container instead. In general, try to take less food to go by eating at the establishment or preparing more meals at home.


The average American throws away approximately 185 pounds of plastic per year.
