Tips for Composting

While you CAN compost anything that was once living and contains energy for another living process, we do AVOID a few items to encourage a more healthy and sanitary experience composting. We do not want your bucket smelling of rotting meat, rancid oil/milk, or...feces!

We CAN accept raw/cooked meats/fish however please understand that these items will cause odors quickly

  • Wrap raw or cooked fish/meat (wrap wet material in paper to help absorb moisture and reduce odors)
  • Layer fresh material with non-glossy paper to keep covered and avoid odors

If you notice mold forming in your bucket, cover the material lightly with paper, trying not to disturb the spores. Mold is good for composting but bad for indoor air quality.
