What Goes in the Bucket
We like to say, "if it grows, it goes!"
This means, you can put almost everything from the kitchen into the bucket: fruit and vegetable scraps, non-greasy food scraps like rice, pasta, bread, cereal etc., coffee grounds & filters, tea bags (staples OK), egg and nut shells, pits.
Please NO meat, dairy, bones, chicken, fish, greasy food scraps, fat, oil, dairy, animal waste, litter or bedding, coal or charcoal, coconuts, yard waste, to-go containers or cutlery.
