Composting is easier than you think
- Fruit and veggie scraps
- Egg shells
- Tea bags, tea leaves
- Fresh green grass clippings and plant trimmings grown without pesticides or weed killers
- Plate scrapings (excluding meat and bones)
- Dry leaves, dried grass clippings
- Wood shavings or sawdust
- Nuts and shells
- Coffee grounds and filters
- Pinecones, pine needles
- Shredded egg cartons (the paper kind)
- Shredded newspaper and tissue paper
- Peanut shells
- Cold wood ashes
- Dryer lint
- Shredded cereal boxes and other paperboard items
Your leftovers don't need to head to the garbage.
Composting leaves and grass clippings doesn't require a closed bin. Again - adding moisture can help the process.
Piles sometimes could use air to prevent odors from anaerobic bacteria. Turning the piles occasionally will let air in.
Give composting a try.
