Translate to colloquial Spanish

Anyone out there with pretty good Spanish skills? My high school classes are long since forgotten.

I need a sign for my recycling can to stop the construction workers from putting their lunch trash in there. (Probably will also need to get a plastic bag to line the real outside garbage can--normally I just move the bag of kitchen garbage out to it and don't use a liner.) Does 'Ninguna Basura' say what I want? The whole sign says:

Clean Recyclables Only
No Trash or Garbage
--
Ninguna Basura



While I'm at it, does my sign for the bedroom door translate properly?

Do Not Enter
Cats Inside
--
No Entrar
Gatos Adentro

Hola, mi amiga!

The Teflon Spouse, when I forwarded this to him, gave the following reply:

"The trash translation could be:
Reciclables limpios solamente.
Ningun tipo de basura"

He wrote that he didn't understand the "cat bit." (g)

Gracias!

(And I suspect "no entrar" is sufficient for the bedroom door...)
