Here’s a quick-start guide

Select your food scraps. Start with fruits and veggies — the skin of a sweet potato, the top of your strawberry. Also tea bags, coffee grounds, eggshells, old flowers — you can even compost human hair! …

Store those food scraps. You can find indoor and outdoor compost bins and cans at most stores that sell home goods

When your compost storage is full, bring it to CUCC and empty it in the large CompostNow cart in the courtyard.
