Do you line your green bin with a plastic bag?
If you use a plastic bag to line your kitchen catcher, empty the contents of the bag into the green bin, then throw the bag in the garbage.
Plastic and plastic-lined bags do not go in the green bin - even the ones labelled "biodegradable" or "compostable". Use newsprint or a paper bag to line your bin instead.
