The DeLish Bite

Lindsay Evans blogs about food, entertaining and her favourite recipes for Green Living.

It seems there is a great deal of confusion surrounding how to properly use your Green Bin in Toronto. As I think this is such an important initiative in Toronto, I felt like I should do a little bit of research to help people out! Here is a quick list of the things that are ALLOWED to be put in your green bin: Fruits, vegetable scraps Meat, shellfish, fish products Pasta, bread, cereal Dairy products, egg shells Coffee grounds, filters, tea bags Soiled paper towels, tissues Soiled paper food packaging: fast food paper packaging, ice cream boxes, muffin paper, flour and sugar bags Paper plates Candies, cookies, cake Baking ingredients, herbs, spices Household plants, including soil Diapers, sanitary products Animal waste, bedding (e.g. from bird/hamster cages), kitty litter Pet food For more details on Toronto's Green Bin initiative and to find a complete list of items NOT allowed in your green bin, please visit: www.toronto.ca/greenbin AND www.toronto.ca/greenbin/faq.htm
