Can I Compost This?

With Earth Day approaching (April 22), consider composting as a way to reduce the amount of trash you send to the landfill.

If you need to know which materials you can compost, Can I Compost This? is a great resource for answers. With over one hundred items in the database (and growing), you can search or browse by categories such as dairy, leftover food and household waste. In the fruit section, I learned that citrus fruits are not recommended for composting, as they make your compost overly acidic and many compost heap worms do not like citrus peel.
