    Well in part that depends on your local recycling program. Based on it, there will be a certain amount of non-recyclable, non-compostable waste (mostly plastics). For example, in New York City (where I am), the list of such garbage includes things like: styrofoam cups and containers; and many plastic items, such as deli and yogurt containers, wrap, toys, cups, bags. Some stores accept plastic bags for recycling; or you could get one of those reusable bags instead; or there are also biodegradable bags you can buy. After all that, the amount of non-biodegradable waste should be pretty small, depending on how much of those items you regularly throw out.
