Peel It

Don’t forget to remove the produce sticker before composting your peels! These tiny pieces of plastic are a major problem for composting facilities.

It’s great that fresh produce doesn’t often come with packaging, but the little stickers, twist ties, and rubber bands used to label and keep them together are a growing problem for composting facilities. These small pieces of plastic, wire, and rubber are not compostable, and are often too small and pliable to be screened out of finished compost.

Help keep these contaminants out of our valuable compost by making sure to remove any non-compostable material from your produce, no matter how small!
