Most Organics Collection programs, whether they are residential or commercial, have a variety of educational pieces associated with their program.  Topics range from preventing food waste to how to store organics for collection to information on compostable plastics. These programs often include brochures designed for distribution to program participants outlining acceptable/unacceptable materials, tips on how to collect and store the organic materials in the home, collection schedules, videos, and a variety of tools. Often the program has translated its program information into multiple languages so a broader audience can be reached with program details.
