15 Best Items for Composting

Composting your own waste is an excellent way to save money by creating your own fertile top soil and helps reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills. You do not necessarily need a container to create your own compost, you can just have a compost heap or pile.

Compost can be created year-round and typically takes about six months to be produced from the time that you start. It is recommended to keep a balance and variety to the things that you add to keep the process moving quickly, as too much of one thing or the other can slow this process.

1. Dried leaves
2. Tea leaves
3. Grass clippings
4. Dried manure
5. Fruits
6. Vegetable
7. Peelings
8. Coffee grounds
