Food

Collect food in a small bowl or container that you can empty into your bin a couple of times a day. Here are a few things we recommend…

  • Fruit and veggie scraps
  • Pasta, bread, and grains
  • Coffee grounds and filters
  • Teabags
  • Nut and eggshells
  • Dairy
  • Meat and fish (yes, bones too!)
  • Candy, cookies, and cake
  • Herbs
  • Spices

Paper

Non-food products can also be added to your compost bin, but please be careful. If you aren’t 100% sure it is compostable, try putting it in your recycling bin instead. Here are a few things that generally pass the test…

  • Paper napkins and plates
  • Paper towels and the roll
  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Paper fast food packaging
  • Pizza boxes
  • Muffin wrappers

Other

Go the extra mile in composting and collect the everyday compostables around your home. Review your personal hygiene routine and supplies for opportunities to compost.

  • Finger and toenail clippings
  • Hair trimmings
  • Pet food
  • Household plants and soil
  • Eco-friendly business cards, flyers, printed materials, etc.
