Composting at Good Shepherd is Here.....and it's Simple!

Any and all food scraps can now be composted. Place them in the small bin located in the kitchen marked "compost," or place a compostable bag in a large pot to collect food scraps from community meals. When the bag is full, place it in the large, gray trash can outside in the alley marked "compost." Replace the bag in the small container. Bags for composting are out in the kitchen near the sinks.

 All the items below can be composted; just place any boxes, newspapers, food packaging directly into the gray bin outside:

- Food scraps, including meat, bread, vegetables, table scraps, dairy, coffee grounds and pasta

- Unsoiled or food-soiled paper products, such as paper towels, paper bags, pizza boxes, napkins, paper cups, newspaper and food packaging

- Compostable plates, cups, utensils and plastic bags

Yard waste such as grass clippings, garden vegetation, leaves and brush are are acceptable too.  You can also bring your food waste from home, as long as it’s either in a compostable plastic or paper bag.

Let’s fill up the compost bin instead of the landfill!
