These days more and more people are taking more care with their trash. If you are having a house party or wedding reception dont forget to put out the recycle bins. This is an often overlooked detail, but your guests do notice. People will always ask the bartender if there is a recycle bin and scoff when there is not. With A Twist Bartending uses compostable corn cups for our parties our glassware, no red keg cups please.

Also dont forget to label your trash and recycle containers otherwise you will have all kinds of mixed trash because people are left guessing.

Help us all out and make sure your venue is recycling!
