FAQ > General Information > What Should I NOT Put in my Compost Pile?

Search the FAQ for entries containing:


Do not put the following in your compost pile:
  • weeds that have already gone to seed ( the seeds may survive)
  • visibly diseased or insect infested material
  • meat, grease or fat. It attracts rodents and other pests
  • pig, cat or dog waste, which can transfer parasites to the compost pile
  • grass clippings or weeds that have been treated with weed killer
  • manure or bedding from farms that use herbicides
  • poison ivy, sumac, or oak
  • pine needles or large branches; they take a very long time to break down
