Paper towels (used)

Used paper towels can be placed in your green bin along with your food and garden waste. Paper towels used with cleaning solvents should be placed in your household garbage bin.

Used paper towels can be placed in your green bin along with your food and garden waste. Wrapping your food scraps in paper towel or newspaper is acceptable too. This green waste will be turned into compost and then used in parks, gardens and farms to improve soil, rather than being buried in landfill.

Paper towels used with cleaning solvents should be placed in your household garbage bin.
