Do compost:

  • All your vegetable and fruit wastes, (including rinds and cores) even if they are moldy and ugly.
  • Old bread, donuts, cookies, crackers, pizza crust, noodles: anything made out of flour!
  • Grains (cooked or uncooked): rice, barley, you name it.
  • Coffee grounds, tea bags, filters.
  • Fruit or vegetable pulp from juicing.
  • Old spices.
  • Outdated boxed foods from the pantry.
  • Egg shells (crush well).
  • Corn cobs and husks (cobs breakdown very slowly).


  • Meat or meat waste, such as bones, fat, gristle, skin, etc.
  • Fish or fish waste.
  • Dairy products, such as cheese, butter, cottage cheese, yogurt, cream cheese, sour cream, etc.
  • Grease and oils of any kind.

Why can’t you compost these food wastes?

  • They imbalance the otherwise nutrient-rich structure of other food and vegetation waste and breakdown slowly.
  • They attract rodents and other scavenging animals.
  • Meat attracts maggots.
  • Your compost bin will smell to holy hell and back!
