A to Z of recycling and rubbish - Compostable packaging

Item Compostable packaging
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/compostable packaging, our green waste is composted in outdoor windows which does not reach the required temperatures or time parameters for even the thinnest compostable packaging to biodegrade.

Biodegradable/compostable products require specific and industrial composting conditions to be effective.
