NewsBring Aeri the aerobic bacterium a treat this Christmas and New Year - your compostables

Aeri the aerobic bacterium and his friends are looking forward to the treats you bring to his compost bin.  Buffalo chicken wings, a turkey leg, peelings from sweet potatoes or oranges… they love ’em all.  Even pizza boxes! Aerobic bacteria like Aeri will digest the food and paper products (marked “compostable”) that you drop off, making rich soil for local farms for next spring’s crops.

Here is a list of what is compostable.
