Eggs & Eggshells
100% compostable! For the green cart.
If you like scrambled eggs, whole, raw eggs can be washed, then the yolk and albumin can be blown out, in order to make your own easter eggs.
Eggshells are also a good source of calcium for your garden. Dry the shells, pulverize them and mix equal parts of eggshell powder with white vinegar. Let set for 2 hours. This calcium solution may be added directly to your soil or to a compost pile. Calcium helps stop blossom end rot in tomatoes.
