Tea bags

Tea bags aren’t accepted by our green waste composting facility and must go in the garbage bin.

Tea bags aren’t accepted by our green waste composting facility and must go in the garbage bin. The tags, and sometimes the bags, contain plastic components that don't break down in our contractor's composting system.

You can empty the tea into the green waste, and dispose of the rest in the garbage.
