Food Waste Composting in DB

Posted on September 17th, 2017 in Food,Recycling,Uncategorized by Dana Winograd

There has been a food waste composting programme for household organic waste running in DB for the past few years. If you are not part of the programme, please contact your village management office to find out if you can be involved. Every village has at minimum one food waste bin.

The instructions are posted below. The main things to remember are:

  • Do NOT put plastic bags in the bin – throw your food waste in loose
  • Only chicken and fish bones – no other animal bones
  • No liquid – should be as dry as possible
  • No hard pits/shells such as avocado, walnuts, etc
  • No corn cobs or husks

If you put in the wrong materials you risk contaminated the entire lot, especially if you put in a plastic bag.

The bins are collected from the villages between 9am and 12 noon.

Wouldn’t it be great if everyone was composting their food waste!
