Materials to Compost
Keep this list of green and brown materials close to your compost bin so you can get the right mix of composting materials.
The key to quality composting is to get the right combination of nitrogen-rich (green) materials with carbon-rich (brown) materials. In the most nutritious compost heaps, carbon-to-nitrogen ratio is 30:1.
We know you’re busy, so make keeping track of your materials-in easy. Print off this sheet of compostable green and brown materials. Then staple it to your compost bin for a quick reference. (Laminate it first, of course, to withstand the weather.) We also left you space to track of which days you turn the pile.
If you don’t already have a compost bin, learn to build one out of wooden pallets.
