What can I compost?

There are a variety of materials that can be composted, including yard trim, leaves, grass and brush, and food. A few examples of food items include fruits and vegetables, cooked meats, leftovers, bones, eggs and eggshells, dairy (no liquids), seafood and shellfish, baked goods, coffee filters and grounds, tea bags and loose tea leaves, soiled paper napkins and pizza boxes.  Visit mypgc.us/compost to view a list of unacceptable items.
