Tips

* Be sure the mix of ingredients you put in your tumbler contains wastes high in nitrogen and carbon for a good balance.
* Do not attempt to make compost using any products that have been treated with chemical fertilizers or pest control products.
* If you have bulky items to compost, such as corn cobs, melon rinds, and shrub clippings, be sure to run them through a shredder before putting them your tumbler.

Menu of Things to Compost

* Fresh Grass Clippings
* Shredded Leaves
* Kitchen Trimmings and Peels from Vegetables and Fruits
* Sawdust
* Garden Throwouts such as dead flowers and plants
* Weeds (Yes! The temperature inside the ComposTumbler gets hot enough to kill the weed seeds!)
* Manure (From horses, cows, chickens, rabbits, pigs or sheep. Do not attempt to compost any wastes from dogs or cats.)
* B/W sections of newspapers
* Rotted fruits and vegetables
* Pine Needles
* Coffee Grounds
* Tea Leaves
