Construction and Demolition (C&D) Disposal Guidelines
        Stores carry different brands of “degradable” plastic bags; both on        “compostable”
BIODEGRADABLE IS NOT THE SAME AS COMPOSTABLE
In Cumberland County, compostable bags marked with one of the two compostable logos above, are accepted in the green carts.  They certify that the bag meets standards for composting.  Both the individual bags and the package will be marked with the logo.
NON ACCEPTABLE GREEN CART OR MINI BIN LINERS
Also: Degradable & Oxo-degradable bags such as those issued at Bulk Barn, Chapters Books and some farm markets are not acceptable.
