Crush stuff into your green organic containers (Compostainers)

We live in a city that collects organic waste in green 'Compostainers' every two weeks. We often see people throwing out bags and bags of leaves.

Firstly, you can compost everything.

Secondly, if you don't compost, at least you can throw things out without throwing out extra plastic. Just take a big shovel and 'pile driver' it into the green bin. You will be able to fit a lot in there without needing to fill up extra bags with leaves/twigs.

You can spread this over several weeks and clear out all of your organics without ever using a single clear plastic bag for organics.

What is good for the environment is good for your pocketbook also.

You could also compost... more on this later.
