Just as the name implies—food! Toss in your peels, bones, shells, and any other food scraps. You can even add weeds, brush, tree trimmings, and other plant matter you clear away from your building.
Note that compostable serviceware products and food-soiled paper cannot be placed in your compost container—organic materials only, please. The only exception is compostable bags and liners, as long as they’re certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI).
