What is the right waste bin to put our improved packaging in? You will find it on the seedling logo on our compostable foil. This logo tells you which waste bin it should be in.
It seems a bit contradictory, but compostable packaging is not allowed to be thrown in the green organic waste bin and also not on the compost heap. Here the foil does not degrade quickly enough. It can only be composted industrially. There, the foil is broken down under controlled conditions within a few weeks. Unfortunately, there is no waste flow that is really optimal for compostable foil. It is still fairly new for everyone. That’s why you’re putting the seedling logo packaging for now with the residual waste. Note: this foil may not be disposed of with plastic waste!
