Paper Napkins Garbage Bin Organic Bin Uncoated food soiled paper napkins may go into the organic bin. *Please do NOT include paper napkins or paper towels with cleaning chemicals or bathroom waste in the organic bin. Place these in the garbage bin. Ways to Reduce Use Cloth Instead of Paper Napkins Rather than use paper napkins at home, buy a set of cloth napkins to use instead. Both linen and cotton cloths are more eco-friendly than single-use paper napkins. Choose Unbleached Paper Products Most paper products that are white or decorative have been chemically bleached and dyed. Opt for undyed, unbleached paper products to reduce the chemical exposure for you and the environment.
