What To Compost
Kitchen Waste • Lawn Clippings (use thin layers so they don’t mat down) • Chopped Leaves (large leaves take a long time to break down) • Shredded Branches • Garden Plants (disease-free plants) • Shredded Paper • Weeds (before they go to seed) • Straw or Hay • Newspaper • Wood Ash (sprinkle lightly between layers) • Tea Leaves and Coffee Grounds
Do Not Compost
Meat Scraps and Fatty Trash • Excessive Wood Ashes (counteracts with manures) • Sawdust (generally slows the decomposition of the pile)
