Is paper good to put in compost?

    Yes: paper is both biodegradable and organic, and is therefore a good ingredient for your compost heap. Definitely use paper, and give back to the earth what was taken from it!

    To add, if you shred the paper up before you put it in your compost bin it will degrade faster.

    If you want good compost that is the right balance of Nitrogen: Carbon, you should be sure that your compost isn’t too carbon heavy. Adding paper is adding carbon (cellulose). So I would recommend testing it to see what the ratio is before you start shedding documents!
