The stickers on your fruits and veggie may be small, but they can have a big impact at the wastewater treatment plant and in the compost process!
We certainly want you to eat lots of fruits and veggies, but we want to be sure those stickers are disposed of correctly. Produce stickers are made of plastic, so they will not break down in water or in the compost process. This means that when they go down a drain, they can get stuck in pipes or parts of the wastewater treatment system, and they are tough to remove. Due to their size, if stickers are not removed from fruit and veggie scraps that go into your compost bin and they make their way to the composting facility, they are impossible to remove and will end up in the finished compost.
