Professionnel ou débutant, vous êtes nombreux à demander à Google ce que vous pouvez ou non mettre dans votre composteur. Aujourd’hui, on vous donne les réponses !

This is even more of a challenge for those who live in a flat and have an interest in indoor composting, but are afraid of the inconvenience it can cause

To make it easier for you, we've put together this little guide that explains what you should and shouldn't put in an indoor composter like the one Greenzy offers. Yes, not all kitchen waste goes into an indoor composter.

Your composter will love it...

  • Fruit and vegetable peelings
  • Coffee grounds and filters
  • Vegetable garden waste such as spoiled fruit and vegetable tops
  • Paper towels and tissues only if they are ink and fragrance free
  • Some leftover meals such as pasta, rice, stale bread...
  • Old composting soil
  • Tea bags and infusions
  • Eggshells
  • Dairy products that are not too liquid and cheese rinds
  • Peels from citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, grapefruits...
  • Fresh herbs
  • ...

A few tips 

 Avoid putting anything like pits, nutshells or seafood shells in the composter. With the Greenzy composter, hard shells can break the grinder and with other indoor composters, shells may not be composted.

Eat a varied diet and avoid putting just one of the above in the composter in large quantities if you want good compost. As they say in the TV commercials, eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day😉

Your composter will not digest...

  • Chicken because it is full of diseases
  • Frying oils
  • Oyster, mussel or walnut shells because anything that is too hard will not break down
  • The flowers in the shop because they are full of toxic products
  • Animal excrements (litter...) and human faeces (nappies)
  • Cigarette butts
  • Remains of meat and bones, fish including bones, shrimp carcasses... to avoid pests and bad smells
  • Coal ash, barbecue ash, chimney soot
  • Fruit and vegetable labels
  • ...

 A few tips

In general, all non-organic waste such as glass, plastic, metal, etc. should be avoided. Toxic waste such as printed cardboard, coloured printed matter (magazines, journals, etc.), glossy paper, fabrics, etc. should also be avoided.

Also avoid putting in the Greenzy indoor composter anything from the garden such as dead leaves, wood ashes, sawdust and wood shavings, dead leaves and grass clippings... These wastes could take up a lot of space and prevent you from using the composter for a while. And, as we said, the composter also likes to eat a variety of foods!

The above list is not exhaustive, but it is a good start.

Do you want to make compost in your flat or inside your house? Greenzy has found the ideal solution for you. In addition to being design, the Greenzy indoor composter is guaranteed to be odourless and insect-free.
