What Can Be Composted Guideline

Posted August 04, 2014

About 40% of household waste can be composted at home.  Why not turn compost-able waste into black gold to build your garden soil instead!  The following will all make good compost:

  • Vegetable peelings
  • Grass clippings
  • Eggshells
  • Vegetables and fruits beyond their 'sell-by' date
  • Tea leaves and tea bags
  • Egg cartons tore up
  • Fallen leaves and petals
  • Dried flowers 
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Weeds without seed heads
  • Shredded newspaper
  • Straw
  • Fruit peelings - Citrus will take much longer to decompose
  • Crab Meal, Shrimp Meal, Rock Dusts

Adding a compost activator is very beneficial to getting your compost heating up and breaking down.  Organic Fertilizers and amendments can also be used to help feed microorganisms and help the composting process.

As a precaution, never add diseased plants or weeds with seed into the compost heap.
