Hello from Your Green Team,
So, what exactly is compost?
Compost begins as various plants and animals. When these parts decay, nutrient rich soil, compost, is created.
This soil is then used to fertilize plants. Anything that was once living can be used to make compost, including:
Food waste, even bones
Paper napkins, tissues, and towels
Cardboard-soiled or wax coated
Coffee grounds and tea bags
Flowers and other plant materials
Wooden stirrers and toothpicks
Wet and/or soiled paper products
Items marked "Compostable"
: Look for the containers lined with green bags to know where to place your compostable materials.
