Green & Healthy Tip of the Week – Let's Talk Trash - COMPOST!

Have you noticed some new resource recovery bins around TPS? There is a green one for compost, a blue one for recycling, and a black one for trash/landfill.

Today's Trash Talk will focus on Compost! Do you know what goes into the green compost bin?

  • All food and food scraps - including meat, dairy, eggshells, tea bags, coffee grounds,…
  • Napkins and paper towels
  • Paper plates
  • Paper and wax-coated juice and coffee cups (please empty liquids)
  • Compostable utensils (TPS provides only compostable utensils for all events!)

Still unsure? Look at the sign over each bin, or watch the plasma for some tips. If you are really stumped, ask a member of the TPSA Green & Healthy Team or the Green & Healthy Student Ambassadors. And if you still have questions, be sure to read the weekly green & healthy tip for more information!
