How to Collect Food Scraps
To cut down on mess, line your food pail with newspaper or paper towels. Don’t want to use your pail? Simply collect food scraps in a bowl, in newspaper, or in paper cartons. Take the collected scraps out to the green cart every few days or store the container in the fridge.
