It’s really pretty simple and people seem to comply based on my observations.
Here are the appropriate bins at the Ballard Farmers Market.
So this is impressive. The little black bin is for trash. The small food & yard bin may be set aside for compostable food. Walking the Ballard neighborhood in Seattle, the largest container I saw was the 20 gallon trash receptacle.
Recycling containers are free but residents pay for garbage and yard waste collection in Seattle. This likely incentivizes recycling. In San Diego, trash and recycling is free for most residents by the city charter. Some suggest we should pay for waste collection.
Hope you’re inspired to comply with recycling in your community, make the extra effort it might take, to REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE and to encourage others to recycle. There’s a planet at stake.
