Did you know that Q-tip cotton swabs are biodegradable when composted? You can put these in your compost bin instead of your household trash. If composting is not an option, place in your trash bin. The sleeve and tray packaging can be recycled in your home recycle bin. If uncertain, always check with your city waste hauler for details.
