Frequently Asked Questions
Do you compost citrus peels, avocado peels/pits, cherry pits, seeds, and/or nuts?
Yes! If it came from a plant, we can compost it.
Why don't you compost meat? Shellfish?
While our compost piles get hot enough to kill food-borne pathogens, composting meat would quallify us for a different level of composting that we aren't equipped for just yet.
Can we compost cooked vegetables?
Cooking usually involves oil. Oil slows down the composting process. Please keep these out of your food waste buckets and our drop off bins.
Can I compost dead flowers?
