Compostable Bags

For NYC Organics Collection, line your DSNY-issued brown bin with a clear plastic liner, a brown paper bag, or a certified compostable bag to help keep your bin clean and reduce odors.

The kitchen container can be lined with newspaper, a brown paper bag, or a certified compostable bag.

Look for certified compostable bags with the Biodegradable Products Institute logo.
