100% Food Waste

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!)
  • Herbs and spices
A table topped with lots of different foods.

Food Soiled 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
A box with some paper bags on it


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.

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