I’m afraid that when I put my organic material in the green composting bin, it is going to make a mess. Can I use plastic bags in these carts?

No, plastics are never appropriate for the green compost cart. You can use a paper bag, or a bag labeled “compostable” which is made from plants to line your compost pail.

Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) certified bags available to line your composting cart or kitchen pail. Cole Hardware, Rainbow Grocery, Albertsons, Wal-Mart and dozens of other stores carry these BPI certified bags. Visit the Biodegradable Products Institute for more information about compostable products, including garbage bags.
