Rinse your kitchen pail with hot water or place inside your dishwasher after emptying it into the green bin.
Rinse your cart and pour the dirty water onto grass/gravel, not down the storm drain.
Use a compostable bag, paper bag or newspaper liner in your kitchen pail and green cart.
Layer your green cart to keep material from sticking. Place crumpled newspaper on the bottom of your cart and alternate layers of kitchen waste/grass clippings with soiled newspaper or leaves.
