‘Better At The Bin’ is our answer to the recycling crisis we are all facing. Zero waste practicioner Kathryn Kellogg, joins our campaign to share some easy tips and techniques for all of us to be better recyclers and smarter consumers. Our campaign will be be anchored by BetterAtTheBin.com, a website featuring instruction and the latest news about recycling to keep San Francisco residents inspired, informed and motivated to keep recycling.

Three simple things we can all do to be ‘Better At The Bin.’

  1. Empty soda cans and bottles of all liquid. Doing so helps keep paper in recycling bins dryer so more paper can be recycled. Higher-quality paper bales generate revenue that comes back to help pay for curbside collection programs. Those economics benefit everyone.

  2. Empty food containers before recycling them. Doing so keeps food out of your recycling bin. When recycling is cleaner, we can recycle more of it.

  3. Compost all food scraps: coffee grounds, banana peels, vegetable cuttings, even chicken bones. Composting keeps materials out of landfills and returns nutrients to local farms. Compost feeds the soil. That helps farmers grow healthy food that comes to our tables. Farmers even use compost to grow cover crops that pull carbon out of the air and return it to the soil where it belongs.

Reduce and refuse single-use items. 

  1. Refuse plastics. Refuse plastic bags, plastic straws and other plastics whenever possible.

  2. Carry a metal water bottle. Doing so can save you $200 a year.

  3. Carry a (metal) travel mug. We don’t need single-use coffee cups, and coffee shops small discounts to people who bring their own travel mug.

  4. Carry canvas carry bags when shopping. (No plastic bag required, and stores give small discounts to people who bring their own bag.)
