To avoid debris sticking to the sides or freezing at the bottom of your brown bin during winter, we encourage you to use large brown paper bags inside the bin for any garden waste.  Small paper bags will also reduce contact between the damp waste and the inside of the bin.

Please consult the practical guide for collection of organic materials, prepared by the MRC Brome-Missisquoi at the following links:
