Produce Stickers

Disposal Options

Produce stickers, also known as PLU stickers, are a contaminant in composting because they do not break down and they cannot be removed. Please remove all produce stickers from your fruits and vegetables before collecting food scraps or peels for composting at the District Transfer Station or town drop-offs. Try keeping this printable tool (PDF) on your refrigerator or near your kitchen food scrap container to collect produce stickers before putting peels in the compost. 


The fee associated with your town drop-off or curbside collection service applies for this item.
