A to Z of recycling and rubbish - Biodegradable Plastic

Item Biodegradable Plastic
Which bin/container should I use? Red Top Bin
What can you do with it? Unfortunately, at the moment, we do not have a way of dealing with biodegradable plastics, our green waste is composted in outdoor windows which does not reach the required temperatures or time parameters for even the thinnest biodegradable plastics to biodegrade. Biodegradable products require specific and industrial composting conditions to be effective.
