Many people are also concerned about the effects of the inks used for newspapers on their compost pile. The ink used on today’s newspaper is 100 percent non-toxic. The compost will not be harmed by the ink on the newspaper. However, if you have a large pile of newspapers in your yard, you may want to check with your local county health department to see if the ink is safe for composting.

Is it better to recycle or compost newspaper?

By recycling this paper, we are reducing the amount of natural resources used while getting a new paper resource that requires less energy to make. If the paper becomes wet or dirty for any reason, this is the exception to this. Composting would be a better option in this case.

Can I put shredded newspaper in my compost bin?

It is safe to use newsprint and other paper as mulch, except for colored and glossy paper, which might contain toxic heavy metals. The best way to find out is to read the label of the paper you’re using.

If it “organic” or “bio-degradable,” that means it has been certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), a non-profit organization that tests and certifies materials for their environmental and health impacts. Organic materials are made from plants, animals, or fungi that have been grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic chemicals.

They are also certified to be biodegradable, meaning that they can be composted or used as a soil amendment. OMRI has a list of certified organic materials that you can find on its Web site at www.omri.org/certified-organic-materials. You can also check with your local Cooperative Extension office to see if your state has an organic certification program.

For more information, see the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Organic Program website at www.organic.

Can you compost egg cartons?

You can also put cardboard egg cartons in a compost pile. They break down quickly so that you can make richfertilizer for your garden. The egg shells can also be composted.

Why should we avoid using newspaper in compost?

Newspaper can be composted, but it breaks down slowly because of it’s high lignin content. Lignin is a substance found in the cell walls of plants and is resistant to decay. If you want to make your own paper, you’ll need to use a special type of paper that is made from wood pulp.

Wood pulp contains a lot of cellulose, which is the substance that gives paper its strength and elasticity. You can buy it at your local grocery store, or you can make it yourself at home. You soak the paper in water and let it soak for a few hours.

Then you cut it into strips and soak them in a solution of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and water. After soaking, the strips can be cut into small pieces and soaked again in NaOH solution. When you’re done with the soaking process, your paper is ready to be used.
