        Don't we kind of have this? What's the difference between our green bins and compost?

        • Shauna Nep

          Our green bins are for green waste, like leaves/tree trimmings... but in a compost bin you can include food waste (including meat/dairy). You aren't supposed to put food waste in the green bin -- the real reason being that the city doesn't trust people not to put in meat products, which will compost, but they don't take them because they can attract rodents. Theoretically you could really add vegetable/fruit scraps to the green bin even though they say not to.
