What You Can Worm Compost

Deciding what to put in your worm bin is an important part of the composting process. Don't overfeed your worm bin! If you add more food than the worms can eat it will start to smell and attract flies.

DO Feed Your Worms:

  • Fruit and vegetable scraps
  • Shredded paper
  • Egg shells
  • Coffee grounds & filters
  • Tea bags

DON'T Feed Your Worms:

  • Grains, beans or breads
  • Meat, bones or fish
  • Oily or salty food
  • Dairy products or grease
  • Citrus
