You do not need to use a liner of any kind; the material can go loose into your compost cart. If you do decide to use a liner, we encourage you to try newspaper first. BPI-certified compostable liners are the only compostable liners permitted for use in your kitchen pail.
Unlike other “compostable” items, BPI-certified liners have been proven to break down in our local processing facility. Please use them sparingly and never use plastic bags.
