How and What to Compost
Generally speaking all of your kitchen waste except for proteins can be composted. They are called your “greens”. It’s best to leave meat or fish scraps out because they could attract pests. Lawn waste can be added as well, except for perennial weeds and diseased plants. They are called your “browns”. In its simplest form, composting is adding alternate layers of greens and browns. Occasional turning of the pile adds oxygen and helps the organic matter to breakdown. Pet waste should not be composted.
