Can I compost this?

Our bigger compost bin
CUCC is so enthusiastic about composting that we've had to order a larger bin!

Be careful about plastic bags, though.  If you bring your compost from home in a plastic bag, empty the bag into the compost bin and throw the plastic bag into the landfill bin.  If you buy compostable plastic bags, those can go into the compost bin.

Compostable plastic bags
have the word "compostable" on their packaging.
Grocery store produce and bagging bags are NOT compostable.

If you have questions about what can be composted, talk to any member of the Justice in a Changing Climate Task Force or contact Jane Smith
