Reusable bags and reusable food service ware are ideal, as possible.
Remember to bring your own reusable bags and encourage customers to bring their own reusable bags and/or own reusable food service ware (such as takeout containers, reusable straws, etc.,) as this is the best way to reduce the amount of waste that goes to the landfill or ends up in the environment.
When disposable food service ware is necessary, encouraging the proper disposal of compostable and recyclable materials is important. If an organization provides compostable containers, ensure the vessel to compost is available. Also remember, all disposable service ware must be free of any food residue to be accepted for recycling in Charleston County. If food waste cannot be easily removed, your business may be a better candidate for compostable products.
