CAN I COM­POST?

Do It Yourself - - Before + After -

A: Yes, yes, and YES! Hon­estly, it’s one of the best choices you’ll ever make, es­pe­cially once you see how lit­tle reg­u­lar trash you gen­er­ate. (In my house we can get it un­der a bag a week for a fam­ily of four.) You can skip the com­post pail in­side the house if you want—just take scraps out with ev­ery meal prep. If your yard space is lim­ited, check out the loads of cute coun­ter­top com­post bins; you’ll just have to dump the end re­sult into flow­er­pots and the gar­den more fre­quently. If you have a big­ger yard, a com­post site can be as low key as a pile (I mean that quite lit­er­ally) or as fancy as a self-con­tained com­post bin that turns.

ONE NOTE: Throw any kind of meat, bones, fish, fats, dairy, and pet drop­pings into the reg­u­lar trash.
