What can be recycled into compost?

GREEN WASTE Inside Compost Bin

The Green Waste website lists everything you need to start composting today, right in your city backyard or apartment—regardless of how little space you have. Improve your garden, window boxes and plant beds by recycling all your household organic waste, like fruit and vegetable peels, coffee grounds, tea bags, plant trimmings, grass clippings, leaves, egg shells.   Here are some other obscure things you may not have thought about that are able to go into the compost bin:

Pet hair, old spices, stale bread, wood ashes, sawdust, tea bags, dryer lint, old pasta, fruit peels (but not limes, apparently), cardboard Q-tips, nut shells, electric razor trimmings, leather wallets, cooked rice, tofu, old watch straps (leather), wooden toothpicks, pencil shavings, wool socks, brown paper bags, feathers.
