Separation Rules

For bio-waste we have to be somewhat cautious in what we are separating because compared to packaging here there is no label to tell us whether or not we should put for Bio-waste. So we decided to give you some tips on materials that you should or should not separate in bio-waste, we hope it helps you 🙂🙂 We hope you like it!
Above all remember that Bioresidue is always in the brown bin!
